Trump warns Iran of counterattack after reports of plot against US ambassador

President Trump on Monday night warned Iran of a counterattack “1,000 times greater in magnitude” after reports the Iranian government may have hatched an assassination plot against a US ambassador to avenge the killing of Qassem Soleimani, The New York Post reports. 

“According to press reports, Iran may be planning an assassination, or other attack, against the United States in retaliation for the killing of terrorist leader Soleimani, which was carried out for his planning a future attack, murdering U.S. Troops, and the death & suffering caused over so many years,” Trump tweeted.

“Any attack by Iran, in any form, against the United States will be met with an attack on Iran that will be 1,000 times greater in magnitude!” the president wrote.

Politico reported on Sunday, citing two unnamed government officials, the existence of intelligence reports about an Iranian plot to assassinate Lana Marks, the US ambassador to South Africa.
