As a new development on the ongoing tensions, U.S President Trump threatened that he would demand a heavy compensation of billions of dollars from Iraq or else he will imposeâ€œsanctions like they've never seen before'.
As a token of revenge, a red flag was raised on the Jamkaran Mosque in Qom of Iran. In the airstrike conducted by the U.S Army, Iran's elite Quds Force head Qassem Soleimani and Popular Mobilisation Forces deputy Commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were assassinated.
The assassination of the second most powerful person in Iraq had led to tense situation between Iran and the U.S.
Iran President Hassan Rauhani had met the family of Soleimani in Tehran and described the attack as a "grave mistake".
"The Americans did not understand what grave mistake they committed," he added.
