Iran has officially replied after the Pentagon claimed credit for assassinating Iranian General Qasem Suleimani.


Following the attack, Iranian state TV cut scheduled broadcasting to show photos of the revered leader, with a call for prayers.

Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran's foreign minister, blasted Trump's attack on the president's favorite social media platform.

"The US' act of international terrorism, targeting & assassinating General Suleimani—THE most effective force fighting Daesh (ISIS), Al Nusrah, Al Qaeda et al—is extremely dangerous & a foolish escalation," he tweeted.

"The US bears responsibility for all consequences of its rogue adventurism," he added, ominously.
