In the rostrum of the Iranian Parliament, the deputy Ahmad Hamzeh proposed this Tuesday a reward of “3 million dollars to whoever will kill Trump To avenge the death of General Qassem Soleimani, said the semi-official Iranian agency Isna.
The soldier was killed on January 3 by an American drone strike near Baghdad Airport (Iraq). According to Icana, the agency of the Iranian Parliament, Ahmad Hamzeh said to make this offer on behalf of the “3 million inhabitants of (the province of) Kerman”, in the Southeast of
Iran, of which he represents a constituency.
No details on the funding of the award
Originally from this same province, General Soleimani, head of the Quds Force, unit in charge of the external operations of the Guardians of the Revolution (the Iranian ideological army), was buried in the city of Kerman on the night of January 7 to 8 . Ahmad Hamzeh, whose statement comes a few weeks before the parliamentary elections scheduled for February 21, did not give any details on how he intended to finance the award.
Asked about the matter in Geneva (Switzerland), the American ambassador to the Conference on disarmament Robert Wood reacted, describing as “ridiculous” the declarations of the Iranian deputy. “But that gives you an idea of the terrorist roots of this regime and this regime must change its behavior,” he said.
