Iran's United Nations ambassador says missile strikes weren't meant to kill Americans

The crash happened on Wednesday, hours after Iran launched a ballistic missile attack on two military bases housing USA troops in Iraq in retaliation for the United States killing of a top Iranian general.

Fox News' Chris Wallace on Friday clarified why President Donald Trump as well as his management have themselves responsible for the skepticism that's engulfed their factors for the current rise in army stress with Iran.

Soleimani was assassinated in a U.S. drone strike near Baghdad on January 3, prompting Iran to retaliate with a series of missile attacks on United States facilities in Iraq several days later.

"I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies", Trump added.

Although the Iranian foreign minister said the missile attacks on Iraqi bases by the United States armed forces had ended Tehran's response to the Soleimani assassination, the powerful Iranian Revolutionary Guards again threatened Washington on Thursday. On Friday, the president released new details as to why the Pentagon believed Soleimani had been an "imminent" threat to the U.S. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters there's no doubt Soleimani was plotting a series of attacks on Americans before his death. He has also blamed Soleimani's history of helping to foment unrest in the Middle East and provide weapons to Iraqi militia that were used to kill American troops in the Iraq War. Trump and other officials insisted anew that Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani had posed an imminent threat to the US, but they rebuffed repeated attempts to explain what they meant by "imminent". Trump said Soleimani wanted these protests to become more violent. The targeting of Abdul Reza Shahlai was apparently part of an effort to cripple the leadership of Iran's Quds Force, which the US has designated a terror organization along with the larger Islamic Revolutionary Guard Force.

European Union reiterates support for nuclear deal negotiated with Iran, also expressing concern on Friday that escalating tensions in the region could lead to resurgence of state activities Islamic.

In 2018, Trump withdrew from the nuclear agreement signed under President Barack Obama that traded curbs on the program for the easing of sanctions.

The plan is also to target the "inner heart of Iranian security apparatus" with the sanctions. "They would be using that for terrorist activities throughout the region and to enable them to do more bad things", he said.
