UAn Iranian politician offered three million dollars (2.7 million euros) in reward to anyone who kills US President Donald Trump, reports the New York Times this Tuesday, citing the agency ISNA.
Ahmad Hamzeh, a politician from the Kerman, Said before parliamentarians: “On behalf of the people of the province of Kerman, we will pay a three million euro cash reward to anyone who kills Trump“.
It has not been explained whether or not the idea of a reward has the support of Iran’s religious leaders.
“If we had nuclear weapons, we would be protected from threats … We should put the production of long-range missiles capable of holding warheads on our agenda. It is our natural right“, he said, according to the same agency.
Remember that Kerman is the province where he was born Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian general who died in a drone attack in Baghdad ordered by Washington on the 3rd of January.
Tensions between Washington and Tehran have increased in tone since Trump announced the departure of the nuclear deal in 2018, and impose American sanctions. The general’s death ended up trigger military attacks and culminated on 8 January, in the crash of a plane leaving the country, causing the death of 176 people.
