Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi says “Muslims” will extract revenge for the US killing of Quds Force general Qassem Soleimani if former president Donald Trump, who ordered the strike, is not put on trial.

“If Trump and (former US secretary of state Mike) Pompeo are not tried in a fair court for the criminal act of assassinating General Soleimani, Muslims will take our martyr’s revenge,” Raisi says in a televised speech.
