Tehran's prosecutor said 36 people involved in the killing of General Soleimani have been identified, including political and military officials from the US and other Governments, according to state-run media. Following a meeting with Supreme Judicial Officials, Al-Qasi Mehr said: "Political and military officials from the United States and other governments have been identified." He added President Trump is at the top of the list and that his prosecution will be pursued. This is the latest escalation in tensions between the two countries, which are now reaching increasingly dangerous levels. It will also spark fears of an impending World War 3 that would send shockwaves throughout the globe. The US and Iran have been engaged in escalating tensions over the last few years, with the administration of Mr Trump claiming Tehran threatens its allies. The latest heated argument saw US troops kill Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps General Soleimani in January. Earlier this month, Iran warned the US "will soon kneel in front of Iranian Nation" in another example of dangerously escalating tensions between the two countries. Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi condemned comments made by US Special Representative for Iran, Brian Hook. In an interview with Al-Arabiya said he was satisfied with the results of recent sanctions imposed on Tehran. But Mousavi took to Twitter to issue a huge warning, writing: "You will soon kneel in front of Iranian Nation." Earlier this month, The Iranian Tasnim news agency reported that the country's navy completed a test-fire of short and long-range missiles strikes from the coastline and from war vessels in the Gulf. They claimed the weapons hit their intended target with “great precision” and have a range of up to 173 miles (280km).
