Iran is is constantly up to no good and this recently discovered plot to kill a U.S. ambassador to get revenge for the killing of Soleimani is proof.
The Islamic Republic of Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, reportedly is weighing a plan to assassinate Lana Marks, U.S. Ambassador to South Africa, in response to the Trump administration killing Qassem Soleimani—a terrorist Iranian general.
“U.S. officials have been aware of a general threat against the ambassador, Lana Marks, since the spring, the officials said,” Politico reported. “But the intelligence about the threat to the ambassador has become more specific in recent weeks. The Iranian embassy in Pretoria is involved in the plot, the U.S. government official said.”
Marks, 66, has been the U.S. ambassador to South Africa for nearly a year and has known President Donald Trump for more than 20 years. Marks is a famous handbag designer—her bags sell for well into the tens of thousands of dollars—and is a successful businesswoman. Politico added that Marks has deep connections with famous figures in the international community.
A U.S. official told Politico that they think one of the potential reasons that the Iranians could have targeted Marks is her long-term friendship with Trump.
Trump ordered the strike to kill Soleimani, which happened at the start of the year, due to attacks that officials believed Soleimani was planning in the region.
CNN reported, “A current administration official and former senior official with knowledge of the situation told CNN that Iran’s link to the Taliban was cited by US officials as part of the argument for conducting the strike that killed top Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in January.”
