Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei released a video on his website showing the Iranian military acting out a simulated assassination against former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago home.
The action is a threat of revenge over the death of Iran Gen. Qassem Soleimani two years ago on Jan. 3 from an airstrike authorized by Trump.

“The animated video was part of a contest to mark the January 3, 2020, killing of Iran’s Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani, who was slain in an American drone strike in Baghdad,” The Times of Israel reported.
“The video mirrored a propaganda poster last year also showing Trump on a golf course, calling for revenge for Soleimani’s slaying,” it added.
Iran’s president also issued a threat last week to mark the anniversary of the general’s death.
“We will prepare ground for the hard revenge against the US from within their homes, as we do not need to be present as supervisors everywhere, wherever is necessary we take revenge against Americans by the help of people on their side and within their own homes without our presence,” he said.
The threats serve as part of the ongoing concerns from Iran as the nation continues its pursuit of a nuclear weapon.
