On Friday, January 3, US-led an airstrike killing one of Iran’s most decorated military leaders, Qassem Soleimani.
The drone air strike took place near Baghdad airport and resulted in the death of the Quds Force commander.
General Soleimani. 62, was attained celebrity status as a military mastermind for Iran’s war efforts in Syria and Iraq.
The death of General Soleimani is a “declaration of war” by the USA against Iran.
The action between the two countries has not yet involved any other nations directly. A world war is defined as a global war involving significant nations from around the globe.
Tensions have been growing between the US and Iran since 2018 when Donald Trump announced the US would be withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal.
Trump said. “Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States.”
For the first time in the history of Iran, a red flag was raised over the Holy Dome of Jamkarān Mosque symbolising a severe battle to come. The disturbing war flag reads the words: “Those who want to avenge the blood of Hussein.
Red flags in Shiite tradition symbolize blood spilled unjustly and serve as a call to avenge a person who was slain. “The red flag means they are going to sink their enemies in a sea of blood,”
World War 3 is not official and no nations have as yet declared war on another.
