THEsome of these Iranian locations “are very high level and very important to Iran and Iranian culture”said Donald Trump in a message from his Twitter social network account.
“The United States no longer wants threats”, he added.
Donald Trump also said the 52-seat number is the number of Americans who were taken hostage for more than a year at the end of 1979 at the US embassy in Tehran.
THE Tension between the United States and Iran has increased following the death of the Iranian elite force commanderQuds, Qassem Soleimani, a victim on Friday of an air strike on Baghdad International Airport that the Pentagon said was ordered by the President of the United States.
The attack came three days after an unprecedented two-day assault on the US embassy and only ended when Trump announced that 750 more troops will be sent to the Middle East.
The attack has already sparked several reactions, with four of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council – Russia, France, the United Kingdom and China – alerted to the inevitable increase in tensions in the region and urged the parties to reduce the tension. The fifth permanent member of the Security Council of the UN are the United States.
In Iran, the feeling is revenge, with the President and the Revolutionary Guards assuring that the country and “other free nations in the region” will take revenge on the United States.
Also Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, promised to avenge the death of the general and declared three days of national mourning, while the head of diplomacy considered the death “an act of international terrorism”.
