US and Iran were close to war after Soleimani - Zarif

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif (pictured) said in an interview with the NBC News network, that Iran and the United States almost started a war after the assassination of Iranian Army General Qassim Soleimani.

Talking about the Iranian attack on US military bases, which followed Soleimani's death, he reiterated that Teheran reacted "carefully," by striking the bases the operation was carried out of.

Back in January, Iran launched airstrikes targeting two US military bases in Iraq, following Washington's killing of the Iranian general in raids conducted by the military, per instructions by the country's President Donald Trump.
