United States - Iran Tensions
27 | January | 2020

The death of General Soleimani in Iraq, commander of the Quds unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, by order of the American President, increased the level of tension between the two countries and across the Middle East. In retaliation, Iran announced that it would remove limits on enriching uranium and launched a missile battery against U.S. bases in Iraq. On the other hand, fearing a new conflict on national territory, the Iraqi Parliament has called all foreign forces to leave the country.
