After killing of Soliemani Death Iran declares all US forces terrorists
Iran has designated all US forces "terrorists" after an American drone strike killed one of its most powerful figures, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, last week, AFP reports.
The US operation, which killed several others, plunged the Middle East into turmoil and caused ties between Washington and Tehran to plummet even further.
Iran has vowed to avenge Soleimani's killing, and US President Donald Trump promised retalisation in the event of an Iranian attack.
Meanwhile, in Iraq, where the drone strike took place, the parliament asked US and other foreign troops to leave.
Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenai, wept over Soleimani's casket on Monday; his prayers joined the wails of mourners who flooded Tehran's streets demanding retaliation.
