U.S. President Donald Trump agreed with the attack on General Soleimani considering what has been done to “make the world a safer place”.
In a statement, the Pentagon said: “At the helm of the President, the U.S. military has taken decisive protective measures to protect U.S. personnel overseas by assassinating Qassem Soleimani.”
He said: “This strike was aimed at thwarting Iran’s future attack plans.
“The United States will continue to do everything necessary to protect our people and our interests wherever they are in the world.”
