Iran is accusing Trump of war crimes over Soleimani's killing and taking him to the Hague

By

Iran is pursuing war crime charges against President Donald Trump following the killing of one of Iran's most powerful military commanders, General Qasem Soleimani. President Trump ordered an airstrike against Soleimani as he left Baghdad airport in Iraq.

In retaliation, Iran launched several ballistic missiles against U.S. bases in Iraq, and accidentally shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane, killing all 176 people aboard. 

After initially denying involvement in the downing of the plane, Iran blamed heightened tensions over the incident and arrested several people involved.
