President Donald Trump has recently tweeted on his social media that Iran may attack the US. In addition to this, he said that if this happens, then they will retaliate with more 1000 times force. He also said that Iran might be planning to assassinate the US ambassador ‘Lana Marks.’
The ambassador of the US will have to go to South Africa to attend a meeting. Recently the intelligence said that these kinds of threats have become pretty standard nowadays within the past few weeks. The Reports says that intelligence is more concerned regarding the ambassador.
Why Would Iran Assassinate The US Ambassador?
The threat is upon the ambassador is possible because Iran can perform an assassination because of the past conflict among the USA and Iran. Lana Marks is one of the US official members. Therefore the intelligence is in doubt that Tehran will retaliate this time for the killing of Soleimani. Iran disagreed with this report when it came out.
If the assassination comes true, then there will be more tension among both of these countries. However, the election in the USA may come to a halt. It is for sure that Iran is looking for some of the other ways to take revenge for the death of Qasem Soleimani. But this would be there first step, the whole country and the intelligence doubt that.
The intelligence is taking this matter very seriously and trying its best to reduce the risk of assassination.
