Iranian MP Threatens to ‘Attack the White House’

Iranian MP Threatens to ‘Attack the White House’

Iranian MP Abolfazl Abutorabi has reportedly threatened to attack the White House in response to a vow from President Donald Trump to hit Iran hard should they retaliate for the death of Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

Iranian MP Abolfazl Abutorabi has reportedly threatened to attack the White House in response to a message from President Donald Trump that promised severe consequences if the Islamic nation escalates hostilities with the U.S., Fox News reported.

Abutorabi was responding to a question about how Iran should react to the death of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani during an American airstrike, The Independent reported.

“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,” Abutorabi said according to the UK publication, which cited Iranian news agency ILNA.

This comes as President Trump vowed to hit Iran hard should the country retaliate against the U.S. for Soleimani’s death.

“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,” Trump tweeted over the weekend.


The president continued: “He was already attacking our Embassy, and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years.”

Meanwhile, the Iranian parliament opened with politicians chanting “death to America”, as Iraq also held an emergency session in the face of pressure to expel the thousands of US troops stationed there to prevent an Isis resurgence.
