US Targeting 52 Iranian Sites: US President
The United States of America President, Donald Trump has warned Iran after fears of major conflagration near the entire Persian Gulf region prompted following the US assassination of Iranian Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani, that if the Islamic republic attacks American personnel or assets then the US has identified 52 sites in Iran and ‘WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD’- these are the exact lines the US president has tweeted from his official twitter account on Saturday, 4th January 2020. President Trump ended his tweet with ‘THE USA wants no more threats!.
The US President also went on to describe the 52 Iranian sites chosen are representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran back in 1979. Trump’s tweets on Saturday are followed by a huge funeral held in the capital city of Iraq, Baghdad for General Soleimani, after which pro-Iran factions in Iraq ramped up several missile attacks towards Iraqi troops camps in Baghdad and two rockets also slammed Al-Balad airbase where the US troops are deployed.
