A stunning clip shown on CNN shows nearly 300 Iranian lawmakers chanting “death to America!”
Washington Examiner reports members of the Iranian parliament are incensed in the wake of top Gen. Qassem Soleimani’s death at the hands of the United States.
U.S. forces killed Soleimani during a drone strike in Baghdad on Thursday following what President Trump called “very serious” and credible intelligence that Soleimani was plotting to kill American diplomats and military personnel in the Middle East.
Soleimani is believed to be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American service members, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has been deemed an official terrorist organization by the U.S. government.
“Death to America,” almost all of the 290 members of the Iranian parliament chanted over the weekend.
“Mr. Trump! This is the voice of the Iranian nation. Listen!” Parliament speaker Ali Larijani said as lawmakers chanted.
