Donald Trump posted an image of the US Flag, minutes after reports of Gen Qaseem Soleimani’s death.
Iran's Revolutionary Guards confirmed in a statement that Soleimani was killed. Apart from Gen Qassem Soleimani, the strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militias known as the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF).
