Iraq’s justice department has ordered the arrest of US President Donald Trump for his involvement in the killing of Iranian generals Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Muhandis. Iranian media reported that Faiq Zaidan, the head of the Supreme Judicial Council of the country, gave this information.

Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Muhandis were martyred in a US strike near Baghdad Airport on January 3, 2020. General Soleimani visited Iraq as a state guest at that time.

Finally, three years after the assassination, Iraq’s justice department ordered Trump’s arrest.

However, there is uncertainty about whether the implementation of the Iraqi justice order is possible or whether the US government will assist in the implementation of the order. Still, such an instruction is considered significant for several reasons.

As a result of this order, Iraq made it clear that Donald Trump is a criminal. Faiq Zaidan, the country’s top judiciary official, said the martyrdom of commanders known for winning the war on terror was a cowardly crime that had no legal basis.

In addition, the Iraqi order to issue an arrest warrant for Trump was the result of coordination with the Iranian judiciary. Because the country is actively working on it.

Iran’s human rights organizations and the judiciary have cited 94 US officials as being involved in Soleimani’s killing. The deputy head of the international affairs branch of the country’s justice department, Qazeem Garibabadi, highlighted the cooperation of Iraq and Iran in the investigation of the killing of General Soleimani and his associates, saying that the joint committee of the two countries has been exchanging information and evidence on the matter, as a result of which the investigation is more than before. being fulfilled
