Kazem Darabi, former Iranian intelligence operative convicted of murder in the 1992 Berlin Mykonos assassinations said that the "resistance axis" must assassinate former U.S. President Donald Trump, because he gave the order to assassinate IRGC Force Quds commander Qasem Soleimani. He made his remarks in an interview that aired on Channel 5 (Iran) on July 10, 2021. Darabi said that even in the U.S. and Europe, the verdict of a person who carried out an assassination is execution. Darabi was convicted in Germany for the murder of four Kurdish Iranian dissidents. After serving a 15-year sentence, he was released early and deported to Iran in 2007.

Kazem Darabi: "Like Master [Khamenei] said, America is the world’s number one human rights violator, and one should add Europe, and our neighboring countries that consider themselves to be dependent on America and heed it. They, too, are accomplices in the crimes of the Americans and Europeans.


"Hajj Qasem Soleimani was assassinated, and the U.S. President Trump had the audacity to say on TV and in front of the whole world’s microphones that he had given the order. This means that the resistance axis should assassinate Mr. Trump now. I should consider assassinating Mr. Trump to be an Islamic duty according to the shari'a."

Interviewer: "Assassination? Why?"

Kazem Darabi: "Even if Europe or America, if someone comes and carries out an assassination, that person's verdict is execution. Mr. Trump's verdict is death by execution. Inshallah, Trump should be assassinated in the near future."
