Trump threatens to strike 52 Iranian targets if Tehran retaliates against US over general’s death

President Donald Trump on Saturday warned Iran not to retaliate against the U.S. over the killing of the Islamic Republic’s top general, threatening to strike 52 targets if Tehran did so. 

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has threatened “severe revenge” for the death of Gen. Qasem Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad Thursday night.

Trump ordered the airstrike which killed Soleimani, the head of a special unit of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard who was responsible for Iranian military strategy across much of the Middle East. 

The general’s death in a U.S. airstrike has raised concern throughout the region and the world that already tense relations between Washington and Tehran are now spiraling toward war.
