Not only that, Obama officials warned Soleimani of the planned 2015 Israeli Attack!
PJ Media (h/t Karen B) When President Donald Trump gave the order to kill Iran’s Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani, he not only made an arguably proportionate response to the invasion of the U.S. Embassy this week but he also reversed a policy of the Obama administration.
A Kuwaiti newspaper report states that Israel was ‘on the verge’ of assassinating Soleimani back n 2015 when the terrorist was located near Damascus. However, the Obama administration pulled one of the lowest sneakiest moves ever when they alerted the Iranian leadership of Israel’s plan, telling Iran that Israel was tracking the Iranian general.
The Trump administration, on the other hand, gave Israel a green light to assassinate Soleimani, according to a January 1, 2018 report from the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida. The paper quoted a source in Jerusalem as saying that “there is an American-Israeli agreement” that Soleimani is a “threat to the two countries’ interests in the region.”
According to the report, the agreement between Israel and the U.S. came three years after Washington thwarted an Israeli attempt to kill the Iranian general.
“The report says Israel was ‘on the verge’ of assassinating Soleimani three years ago, near Damascus, but the United States warned the Iranian leadership of the plan, revealing that Israel was closely tracking the Iranian general,” Haaretz reported.
