Iran is weighing an assassination attempt against the US ambassador to South Africa. Citing multiple US intelligence sources and a CIA global threats document, it would be the Islamic Republic’s preferred method of retaliating against US President Donald Trump’s assassination of Revolutionary Guards commander Qasem Soleimani. Iran has operated clandestine networks in South Africa for decades. An attack now could also serve to undermine perceptions of US power as Washington tries to realign the Middle East against the ayatollahs following Israel’s normalization deals with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. An attack on European soil at the moment could also undermine EU support for Iran’s position in its nuclear standoff with the US. https://www.jpost.com/middle-east/iran-news/cia-iran-seeks-to-assassinate-us-ambassador-to-south-africa-report-642195 ................................................................... #politics #war #iran #terrorism #news
