Shafak News / US State Department spokesperson, Morgan Ortagos, responded Thursday to the threats by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to respond to the killing of Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani, as an attempt to divert attention from the economic crisis in his country.

In statements to Washington-funded Al-Hurra TV, Ortagos said, Khamenei: “desperately seeks to divert attention from the escalating economic crisis inside Iran.”

She added, “He is also seeking to divert attention from his regime’s role in human rights violations throughout the region, such as the killing of many peaceful demonstrators and human rights defenders in Iraq by its militias.”

“Not surprisingly, he also posed a threat to the United States,” Ortagos added. “Twitter may consider this a violation of its terms and conditions,” she concluded.

During his meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi on Tuesday, Khamenei threatened to respond to the killing of Soleimani, and stressed that Iran will not forget this issue, and will surely respond with a strike against the Americans.

Khamenei was talking about the American presence in Iraq, and he addressed Al-Kazemi, saying: “They killed your guest in your house and confessed openly to the crime, and this is not an easy issue.”

Soleimani, accompanied by the deputy head of the Popular Mobilization Authority, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, was killed in January by an American missile strike on a drone that targeted their convoy near Baghdad airport.
