We Killed Soleimani To Avert War - Trump

From Gold Sharon, Foreign Desk

The United States President, Donald Trump, has revealed that he authorised the drone attack that struck the Iranian top military chief, Qassim Soleimani, dead, to avert any war with Iran.

Trump also said that US was not seeking a   "regime change," in Iran after assassinating her high profile general in a daring attack.

According to the US president,  he took the decision on Soleimani to prevent a plot against America by him, who he called a "sick monster"and "the number one terrorist anywhere in the world."

Mr Trump said: "We took action last night to stop a war, we did not take action to start a war.

"Soleimani made the death of innocent people his sick passion, contributing to terror plots as far away as New Delhi and London. His reign of terror is over.

"He was plotting imminent and sinister attacks on American diplomats and and personnel but we caught him in the act and terminated

 "We do not seek regime change. However, the Iranian regime's aggression, including use of proxy fighters to destabilise neighbours, must end, and it must end now.

"If Americans anywhere were targeted by Iran he had targets already identified and I am ready and prepared to take whatever action is necessary."

The White House insisted it acted in response to clear threats against Americans.

Robert O'Brien, the US national security adviser, said Soleimani arrived in Baghdad from Damascus and had been moving around the Middle East plotting imminent attacks on US diplomats and military personnel

However, Iran has vowed to revenge the US airstrike, calling the move America's "biggest mistake in west Asia" that would be met with "severe vengeance."
