Abbasali Kadkhodai, adviser to the Iranian foreign minister, claimed it is possible to bring Trump and other American officials who ordered the killing of the former commander of the IRGC's Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, to court.
“According to international documents, governments are committed to confronting terrorist groups, and based on these commitments, Iran, under the leadership of Soleimani, confronted ISIS terrorists,” added the Head of the Follow-up Committee on the killing of Qassem Soleimani on Tuesday.
On January 3, 2020, the US military, on the order of President Donald Trump, killed Soleimani in a drone strike near Baghdad International Airport, saying that he had been "actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region."
Earlier, the Iranian regime claimed that Washington conducted the killing of Soleimani with "false claims and pretexts, including under the guise of counter-terrorism" and in "naked violation of the tenets and principles of international law."
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said in January that nearly 60 US officials have been blacklisted by Tehran for their involvement in the assassination of Soleimani.
Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei have time and again vowed revenge for the killing of Soleimani, and the pair are now emboldened by legal proceedings against the former president underway in the US.
Soleimani, who was Iran’s top military and intelligence operator outside its borders, was in charge of supporting and organizing militant proxy forces, including the Lebanese Hezbollah and Iraqi Shiite militia groups that have repeatedly attacked US forces.
