Trump warns Iran: US will hit 52 targets ‘very hard and very fast’

Trump warns Iran

US President Donald Trump has warned Iran the US has identified 52 targets it will hit if any Americans are harmed.

In a number of tweets on Saturday night he warned that the US will hit the targets "very fast and very hard".

He said the 52 Iranian targets represent 52 hostages previously taken by Iran.

"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," he tweeted.

"He was already attacking our Embassy, and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years.

"Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!"

It comes after Iran threatened to avenge the assassination of Iranian military commander Qassem Suleimani in Iraq.
