Tehran residents reacted to the assassination of top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani on Saturday, calling for a show of strength from Iran.
«We must show our power and it should be a strong slap on the US president's face and the Israeli prime minister as well,» said Rahmani, a resident.
«War and murdering are unacceptable,» said Malek Araghi Mehdi Hubakht, another resident. «I do not know why... Еще the United Nations is silent in this regard or why it has not taken action. I just know that recent events and the killing of general Qassem Soleimani have turned him into a world power and his name will forever be in history.»
Soleimani was killed in a US airstrike at Baghdad's international airport in the early hours of Friday morning.
The Pentagon released a statement confirming the US had carried out the airstrike at the order of US President Donald Trump, calling it a «decisive defensive action to protect US personnel abroad.» Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said «severe revenge awaits the criminals» behind the attack.
