Overseas network, Jan. 7 - the U.S. warned earlier that if Iran strikes any U.S. individuals or U.S. assets, the U.S. military will target 52 important Iranian targets. In response, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani issued a number 290 in the early morning of the 7th in social media, warning the US side never to threaten the Iranian people.
Ruhani tweeted in response to trumps earlier threats in the early morning of the 7th, saying that those who quoted the number 52 to determine the number of targets should not forget the 290 people killed on flight 655. Rouhani was also paired with the topic of the air crash of Iran flight 655 and warned the US side never to threaten the Iranian people.
It is understood that the air crash of Iran Air flight 655 (ir655) occurred on July 3, 1988. The plane was shot down by a US warship in Iranian waters at that time. All 290 passengers and crew members were killed, including 66 children and 1 pregnant woman. The U.S. government later argued that at that time it mistakenly identified the aircraft as a fighter aircraft carrying out an attack mission, while the Iranian government believed that the U.S. deliberately shot down the Iranian airliner with full knowledge, and the operation was also allowed by the U.S. military. Later, Iran Airlines still used the flight number on the route, bearing in mind the crash.

On the 4th local time (the 5th Iranian time), US President trump warned Iran in a social platform that if Iran strikes any US individuals or US assets, the US military will strike 52 important Iranian targets that have been targeted. For many years, Iran has been a problem. If Iran strikes any US individuals or US assets, as a warning, we have targeted 52 Iranian targets (representing 52 US hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some of which are very important to Iran and its culture, and these locations will be hit very quickly and severely, trump said. America doesnt want to be threatened any more!
In response, Iran responded that the U.S. military may not really dare to do so. This threat aims to recover the international face lost by the U Land .

The whole incident resulted from an American assassination. At least eight people, including Sulaimani, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards al Quds brigade, were killed in three U.S. rocket attacks on Baghdad International Airport in the early hours of this month.
After the incident, the US action drew international condemnation. Russias foreign ministry said the killing of Iranian generals by the United States would increase tensions across the Middle East. Speaking with French President Marcon, Putin also expressed concern about the death of Iranian general Sulaimani caused by the US missile attack, and both sides agreed that the US action might cause extreme deterioration of the situation in the region. On the European side, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Marcon and British Prime Minister Johnson also condemned the United States led attack on Iraq, while expressing concern about the negative impact of the killing of major Iranian general Sulaimani in the region.
