Trump Admin Tried To Assassinate Another Top Iranian Commander

10 Janvier, 2020, 23:33 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Several unnamed USA officials told the Post and the Journal that President Donald Trump had reportedly authorized a drone strike on Iranian Quds Force leader Abdul Reza Shahlai in Yemen, but it failed to kill him.

The Trump administration tried to kill another top Iranian commander on the same day of the fatal strike on Qasem Soleimani, Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The strike targeted Abdul Reza Shahla'i, a key commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force.

A USA drone strike on January 3 killed Soleimani shortly after he landed at Baghdad International Airport.

On the same night the United States killed Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani, the USA unsuccessfully targeted another senior Iranian military official in Yemen, according to a U.S. official with knowledge of the events and another source familiar. No one was killed in that retaliation. "The Department of Defense does not discuss alleged operations in the region", said Navy Cdr.

The unsuccessful operation against Shahlai may indicate that the Trump administration's killing of Soleimani last week was part of a broader operation than previously explained, raising questions about whether the mission was created to cripple the leadership of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps or exclusively to prevent an imminent attack on Americans as originally stated.

The Trump administration has been under fire by Democrats and two Republicans in Congress over its decision to order the attack that killed Soleimani. "I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies".

By the next morning, the US knew that they had failed to kill him in the strike, the counter-terrorism official said.
