Twitter bans account linked to Iran leader over animated video threatening Trump
Titled ‘Revenge is Definite,’ animation showed ex-president being targeted by robot and drone while playing golf in Florida
WASHINGTON/Times of Israel — Twitter said Saturday it had permanently suspended an account linked to Iran’s supreme leader that posted a video calling for revenge for a top general’s assassination against former United States president Donald Trump.
“The account referenced has been permanently suspended for violating our ban evasion policy,” a Twitter spokesperson told AFP.
The account, @KhameneiSite, this week posted an animated video showing an unmanned aircraft targeting Trump, who ordered a drone strike in Baghdad two years ago that killed top Iranian commander General Qassem Soleimani.
The recent video, titled “Revenge is Definite,” was also posted on Khamenei’s official website.
As head of the Quds Force, the foreign operations arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Soleimani was the architect of its strategy in the Middle East.
He and his Iraqi lieutenant were killed by a US drone strike outside Baghdad airport on January 3, 2020.
Khamenei has repeatedly promised to avenge his death.
On January 3, the second anniversary of the strike, the supreme leader and ultraconservative Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi once again threatened the US with revenge.
