Trump Warns Iran Against Retaliation: We’ve Targeted 52 Iranian Sites, One For Each Hostage Taken In 1979

Reuters reports:

US President Donald Trump has ramped up the pressure on Iran – threatening to hit 52 sites ‘very hard and very fast’. In a series of explosive tweets Trump said Iran were ‘targeting US assets’ after the killing of general Qassem Soleimani, regarded as the second most powerful figure in Iran, was killed in the U.S. strike on his convoy at Baghdad airport on Friday in a dramatic escalation of hostilities in the Middle East between Iran and the United States and its allies.
