On January 2, the US military regime launched an airstrike at Baghdad International Airport, killing Iranian Gen. Qassem Suleimani, and multiple Iraqis. It turns out, that was not the only US assassination attempt that day.
US officials are now reporting that they also took a shot at Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander Gen. Abdul Reza Shahlai, who was in Yemen at the time. They failed to kill him.
Officials are declining to offer specifics, but the Treasury Department accused him of “a long history of targeting Americans and invading US troops globally.
The officials said a military air attack targeted Abdul Reza Shahlai, a high-ranking commander in Iran‘s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), but the mission was not successful.
The officials spoke to the Associated Press news agency on condition of anonymity in order to discuss a classified mission.
The Trump Administration has struggled to justify the killing of Soleimani, and has offered no public evidence of allegations of an “imminent” attack.
Shahlai would need to be involved in a whole other plot in Yemen, starting a whole new call for evidence on that too.
That the US regime kept the failed assassination under wraps for more than a week is raising questions on whether the US carried out any more attacks, or was planning to kill even more Iranian leaders at the time.
