Iran Considering an Assassination as Retaliation

Iran Considering an Assassination as Retaliation

( – Iran is upset about the US killing their top military commander, Qassem Soleimani. Perhaps they have the right to be upset, but remember Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of Americans. Now, Iran is considering assassinating a US official as retaliation.

Lana Marks, a US ambassador to South Africa, is the target for Iran’s retaliation, as reported by Politico. The report shows that the US has known about this plan for months now. Concentration on the conspiracy has increased as details from Iran have become more specific in recent weeks.

Why Marks is the target of Iran’s possible retaliation is not quite clear to US intelligence; she has no significant ties with Iran, but the long-time member of Mar-a-Lago is closely associated with President Trump.

The ambassador does know that her life is being threatened, according to reports. If there are alternative methods for Iran’s retaliation, they’re not yet known, though NBC News reports that the country has vowed to avenge the death of Soleimani. If they follow through with this plan, it will likely result in the already high tensions between the US and Iran increasing dramatically.
