Iran: US to face 'crushing revenge' over Soleimani death

Iran's Defense Minister Amir Hatami threatened the United States on Friday with "crushing revenge" after Washington confirmed its troops killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad.

Hatami warned that the "revenge" will be taken on everyone involved in the "horrific crime." Meanwhile, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also noted the "crminals" responsible for Soleimani's death will face "severe retaliation."

Earlier, Pentagon said the US military killed Quds Force head Soleimani in what it branded "defensive action," claiming the general was "actively developing plans to attack American diplomats."
