Iranian Political Analyst Emad Abshenas: Our Security Forces, Intelligence Services Will Target, Pursue All The Terrorists Involved In Soleimani's Killing; Trump Will Be Sentenced For His Crimes

Iranian political analyst Emad Abshenas said in a September 26, 2020 interview on Palestine Today TV (Gaza/Lebanon) that Iran's people, security forces, and intelligence services will target and pursue U.S. President Donald Trump and all the other "terrorists" who were involved in the killing of IRGC Qods Force Commander General Qasem Soleimani. He said that Iran's intelligence services are monitoring these people, that Iran has sued President Trump, that all the people involved in Soleimani's death will be punished, and that President Trump will be sentenced as soon as he finishes his term in office and his immunity expires.

Emad Abshenas: "Even killing all the American leaders in the world will not compensate us for one drop of blood of the martyr Soleimani. Naturally, however, the Iranian intelligence services have been tracking all those who were involved [in the killing of Soleimani). Naturally, these terrorists will be targeted wherever they may be. Iran may take its time, but it will not fail [to take revenge]. [Iran] will target them today, tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow. They will be pursued by Iran forever. They will be pursued by the Iranian people, the Iranian forces, and the Iranian security services. This is Iran's legitimate right, according to international conventions.

"When terrorists assassinate an Iranian military commander during an official visit [to Iraq], they should be treated as they deserve to be treated. Iran filed a lawsuit against Trump personally. Iran asked Interpol to arrest him. Maybe today Trump is taking this issue lightly, because he is still the President of the U.S., and thus he has immunity. If he dies before his term ends, that is one thing. But if he is still alive after his term, the international judiciary will surely pursue him, wherever he sets foot in the world. The Iranian judiciary and the Iranian security services will pursue him, wherever he sets foot in the world.

"Throughout history, we have seen numerous presidents, political leaders, as well as military leaders, who thought they had immunity, and they committed terrorist acts when they had immunity, but afterwards they were arrested, tried, and their sentences were implemented. This is what is going to happen with Trump and all those who were involved in the terrorist attack against the martyr Soleimani and his companions."
