The U.S. special representative for Iran said the successor to Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian commander killed in a U.S. drone strike, would suffer the same fate if he followed a similar path of killing Americans, Asharq al-Awsat newspaper reported.
“If (Esmail) Ghaani follows the same path of killing Americans then he will meet the same fate,” Brian Hook told the Arabic-language newspaper, adding that U.S. President Donald Trump had long made it clear “that any attack on Americans or American interests would be met with a decisive response.”
