The state television announced during the broadcast of a funeral service for the killed terror general Ghassem Soleimani that $80 million bounties would be placed on US President Donald Trump. The one who kills him should receive this amount.
“Iran has 80 million inhabitants. Based on the Iranian population, we want to raise $80 million, which is a reward for those who get close to the head of President Trump,” it said on state TV. Each Iranian should, therefore, donate a dollar to pay the amount to the alleged murderer.
Thought to be a funeral organiser, he says: “On behalf of all of Iran’s people – 80 million Iranians – and each puts aside US$1, it would equal $80million.
“And we would give this $80million, on our own behalf, as a gift to anyone who brings the head of the person who ordered the murder of the grand figure of our revolution.
“Anyone who brings us the head of this yellow-haired lunatic, we would give him $80million on behalf of the great Iranian nation. Chant if you agree.”
Huge chants follow the remarks in the video.
Earlier on Sunday, Iranian Labour News Agency claimed Iranian MP Abolfazl Abutorabi warned the country could respond to the general’s death on US soil.
He said: “We can attack the White House itself, we can respond to them on the American soil.
“We have the power, and God willing we will respond in an appropriate time.”
Following the attack, Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter: “Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader who had just killed an American, & badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime, including recently hundreds of Iranian protesters.
“He was already attacking our Embassy and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years.
