Iran Issues Arrest Warrant for Trump over Targeted Killing of Qassem Soleimani

HeadlineJun 30, 2020

Iran has issued an arrest warrant for President Trump and over 30 others for assassinating General Qassem Soleimani in January at the Baghdad International Airport. Iran asked Interpol to help detain Trump, but the international organization rejected Iran’s request. On Monday, the U.S. dismissed the news of arrest warrants as a “propaganda stunt.” Following the January attack, U.S. lawmakers passed a resolution limiting Trump’s authority to attack Iran without congressional approval.
