Washington: In a tweet, Trump Warns Iran of ‘1000 times greater’ response to any Iran attack.
American President Donald Trump warned Iran in a series of tweets. His tweets came after the news of the alleged Iranian planning of an attack on the US ambassador in South Africa.
Donald Trump Tweeted: “According to press reports, Iran may be planning an assassination, or other attack, against the United States in retaliation for the killing of terrorist leader Soleimani, which was carried out for his planning a future attack, murdering U.S. Troops, and the death & suffering……caused over so many years. Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!”

According to Trump, Iran is planning to avenge the killing of its top general Soleimani. General Soleimani was killed by America in January this year. In response, Iran targeted an American base in Iraq but according to reports none of its soldiers were killed or injured. A passenger also got caught in the line of fire and was destroyed mistakenly by Iranian forces.
Tensions between Iran and America have been all-time high after that. According to media reports, Iran was planning to attack an American Ambassador. After the reports in the press, Trump Warns Iran of ‘1000 times greater’ response to any Iran attack.
The Iranian navy last week said it drove off American aircraft that flew close to an area where military exercises were underway near the Strait of Hormuz.
The military said three US aircraft were detected by Iran’s air force radars after they entered the country’s air defense identification zone.
