from iraqi towns like tikrit. attacks by pro—iranian militia in somebody who the government try to more recently, last summer, the iraqi capital of baghdad in portray as somebody defending iran's his special forces carried out recent days. this was the first operations in the gulf, interests abroad so the reaction to seizing a british—flagged tanker. detailed message we have received his assassination from parts of the from president trump as to why he and in the last week, tensions rose personally ordered the targeted population that are sympathetic to again with the united states. killing of qasem soleimani but there 0n the 27th of december, have been slightly different version the government, it was obvious the a us contractor was killed given throughout the day by the outrage and anger and scenes of in a rocket attack on an iraqi military base, an attack blamed secretary of defence mark esper and on an iranian—backed militia. mourning in the streets of his home town and other cities, there will the secretary of state, mike pompeo, who talked about future threats against american personnel in the predictably be a huge funeral for two days later, the us responded region, others talked about current him in the coming days but also for with air strikes on his brother bases in the middle east, the major part of the population killing 25 fighters. on december 31st, the us embassy threats, ongoing, that were notjust thatis the major part of the population that is not really interested in his in baghdad was attacked in iraq but the wider region. i activity but is worried about what by a furious crowd, encouraged think while there has been support will come next and the government by iranian—backed militia leaders. the pentagon said general soleimani was preparing further for president trump's action, inside attacks on the us in iraq. the united states, there are already will come next and the government many questions being asked about why will retaliate now as iran are to deter those attacks, said the pentagon, a us drone strike didn't he get authorisation, why killed general qasem soleimani. pushed towards another war the assassination of this man, didn't he get authorisation, why potentially with the united states didn't he get authorisation, why didn't he inform his allies because at as it —— as there were consequences for those general qasem soleimani, countries including britain who have is probably the most significant boots on the ground? and what is the potentially with the united states event to happen in the middle east atas it —— asa potentially with the united states at as it —— as a result of this evidence, show the evidence you have attack by donald trump. this since the iraq invasion in 2003. why?

escalated when the iran nuclear deal for carrying out this act. indeed, because he was not some fugitive and turning to the second part of was reached. this was unforeseeable hiding out in mountain caves, by many because they didn't seem to bea he was the iranian state, the message from president trump, by many because they didn't seem to be a diplomatic off ramp before this answering direct to his analysis of the situation in ayatollah khamenei. terms of hearts and minds inside event and with this, the escalation this takes the us—iran tension has now become irreversible. it's ha rd to iran itself, he says that qasem has now become irreversible. it's hard to see how the two sides can to a new and dangerous plateau. soleimani was both hated and feared de—escalate. within the country, people not as hard to see how the two sides can de-escalate. a lot of observers are already, the crowds were out saddened as leaders would let the pointing to the events of the last in tehran today, shouting, outside world believe. you are very "death to america." few days in iraq as a proxy war and washington has warned familiar with public opinion inside iran not to retaliate iran, what is your take on this? we a strike there, tit—for—tat, then for soleimani's death, the attack by protesters on the seem iran, what is your take on this? we seem quite extraordinary protest yet iran has vowed to take inside iran in recent months, which american embassy as a trigger for this. is that an assessment you its revenge in its own time the iranian authorities tried to would echo? certainly de-escalation and in its own way. suppress, but when the internet was frank gardner, bbc news. here, it's understood that put back on we saw the extent of boris johnson was not warned in advance by donald trump them and the huge loss of life via a has seen an increase in the last few of the strike that killed general soleimani. crackdown by iranian forces. there 0ur political correspondent, is no denying the internal dissent weeks. first with iraq and then the jessica parker is at westminster. in iran which is a function of the regime in the islamic republic but retaliation with militia and then also an effect of these crippling as you say, prime minister boris the attack on the us embassy but it johnson has been abroad on holiday sanctions that the united states has
2:09 pm
is the cost of an economic embargo not informed as we understand it by been imposing on iran and causing us authorities of this action deep hardship and there are many and on 80 million iranians that has president trump's team that are overnight so i think there will be hoping this maximum pressure policy given the iranian government, or questions asked in westminster when as they call it will provoke the mps return here on tuesday about iranian people into rising up what has happened and its forced it, to use whatever cards it implications for the uk. for against their leaders, but iran is a has to send a message that this will example, the uk has shipping very nationalistic country, you are not be without cost for the other interests in the gulf. there are seeing images from the streets of around 400 british troops in iraq at side. you cannot shut down the tehran, the streets are absolutely economy of a country that was present, mainly involved in training packed in qasem soleimani's abiding by the nuclear deal and expect that nothing will happen in duties, so i think those questions hometown, and this will at least will be asked and given the reaction momentarily have the effect of the region. that seems to be lost in today, the foreign secretary dominic uniting iranians in the face of this raab has given a statement and the region. that seems to be lost in the conversation, that this is the attack by a foreign power against a natural result of this escalation spoken to his counterpart in the us but ina man who was revered and reviled in that started more than a year ago spoken to his counterpart in the us but in a statement earlier, dominic raab said the government always equal measure but he had celebrity when the us left the deal but at the recognises the aggressive threat status inside iran with many saying posed by the iranian quds force and that he could possibly, given same time, it was very calculated, opinion polls, talking about his both in the persian gulf when we saw the attacks on the shipping, it was popularity, be a future president of we urge all parties to de—escalate. iran although we always —— you all done in a way that doesn't cause an interesting statement from dominic raab, cautious in its tone, a lwa ys iran although we always —— you always said he was just a simple too much damage but sends a message, not a clear endorsement of the soldier. —— he always said. action taken by donald trump and but gradually the escalation took a from the labour party leadership's
2:10 pm
always said he was just a simple soldier. -- he always said. donald trump said he should have been taken perspective, they have used some new turn in iraq so this certainly quite strong language to criticise out many years ago. in a way, that has now entered an arena that is donald trump us decision. let's hear draws attention to the fact that if very ha rd to has now entered an arena that is very hard to control and that's why from shadow foreign emily thornbury. we think back to 2015, when the millions of people are worried because they wonder what the next united states was leading a group of allies to do a deal with iran on action will be and how america will i am concerned about respond to that. here, it is what donald trump is doing control of nuclear weapons and nuclear development at their and and i've been warning understood that borisjohnson was for some time. since he called off the iranian not warned in advance by president then thejoint trump of the strike. 0ur political nuclear deal, he has been nuclear development at their and then the joint fight, if you like, positioning himself for war between iran and the united states and we need to make sure we are against islamic state, they were correspondentjessica parker clear about our opposition to this. kind of moments when things didn't trump of the strike. 0ur political the right—wing theocrats correspondent jessica parker is trump of the strike. 0ur political correspondentjessica parker is at in iran also want to square up for war as well. look that hostile between these two big powers and when, in a way, qasem westminster. it's in their interests to be isolationist and in soleimani was leading a kind of it is understood that borisjohnson was not warned of this air strike. opposition to the west. gentleman is agreement not to fight in one sense, had he been told, it we need to stop this. each other while they were running a might look like he was a close ally earlier, jeremy corbyn calls for shared fight against islamic state. of the us president but had he been restraint on both sides but it's quite striking how far we have particularly called on the uk government to stand up to the come. i'm sure the united states informed, when parliament returns belligerent actions and rhetoric here on tuesday, he would have faced coming from the united states but we wouldn't use the word gentleman when questions about how he reacted and also have been speaking to the it comes to qasem soleimani. he what he said in response to hearing himself and the quds force are on of this news but, more broadly, the the terrorism list in the united political implications, it may be

2:12 pm
president bush and president 0bama right—wing theo cracks in iran also we re president bush and president 0bama him in this very significant were confronted with the request for wa nt right—wing theo cracks in iran also want to squared up for war as well. whether we should have a targeted decision? yes, and i think the it is in their interests to be in killing against qasem soleimani. a nswer they pulled back, knowing the decision? yes, and i think the answer is not a lot. clearly there opposition to the west. we need to consequences, and israel, there was stop this. was cross government consultation. there doesn't appear at this stage one moment when israel contemplated taking him out as well and the a strong reaction from emily to have been any consultation with congressional leaders across the united states and israel said no, thornbury but some people discussing aisle if you like, which can happen they will be huge consequences and how, in their view, this was a ahead of big military incursions and legitimate target. we've been hearing from the former chair of the interventions like this so—called provocation if you do that. donald trump has stepped over that line and gang of eight which will include there will be really unpredictable foreign affairs select committee, democrats, senior democrats from the conservative mp. both houses, as well as republicans. consequences. retaliation for sure, qasem soleimani is unquestionably a we think the house minority leader but iran also has to consider, at a kevin mccarthy may have been at moment when its economy and society legitimate target. he is a uniformed mar—a—lago yesterday, not sure about is weakened by the weight of officer in response of an that, but it's clear the americans american sanctions, it doesn't want organisation that has sponsored didn't consult british government. terrorism and militias and proxy it looks like they may not have to set off another dangerous cycle, armies across the middle east consulted the israeli government and but it will have to retaliate simply leading to the deaths of hundreds of thousands in iraq, syria and many in from the statements that have come for the honour of what it sees as out from the other members of the the us's declaration of an act of lebanon, too, so there is no real doubt that he is a legitimate security council, very, very little war against the islamic republic. military target. gary 0'donoghue is in washington. support in any way for what the americans have done and some stiff i don't think you are going to see anything like parliament being wa rs americans have done and some stiff wars between america and france at gary, we have a line through from

the moment with the secretary of one of our political reporters are recalled early from what has saying it is understood boris state describing the french view of happened overnight and he is due to this as having escalated the problem johnson was not warned in advance by return to westminster on tuesday is totally wrong. meanwhile, the donald trump of the air strike on following the christmas break but it seems very likely that this issue justification is coming from the qasem soleimani. nor, we understand, president himself via twitter but will be raised and put to boris also via his secretary of state in where many other allies for warrant johnson one way or another. the prime minister has been on holiday tv interviews. a picture of their another other leaders of the united abroad. it is not quite clear where states. how much pressure is he is at the moment but he may well president trump going to be under face pressure. to discuss this for this decision taken in a fairly logic is emerging. yes, it's becoming a little bit clearer, the subject when westminster returns on solitary fashion on his holiday in secretary of state has talked this tuesday. so who was general qasem soleimani? morning about imminent attacks that florida? it's not entirely clear who knew and who didn't know yet. there well, he was widely seen as one of the most is some talk that perhaps some powerfulfigures in iran — we re morning about imminent attacks that were being supposedly orchestrated by qasem soleimani and others in the members of the republican congressional leadership may have second only in fact to the supreme region, that this was an beenin leader ayatollah khamenei. intelligence driven operation and if he was hailed by many congressional leadership may have been in mar—a—lago yesterday and may have been a weight of this before it you want to hear his justification, iranians as a national hero. this is how he put it on fox news. happened. we don't have that 0ur security correspondent confirmed at this stage but it does frank gardner reports. president trump's decision to remove they called him the shadow commander. qasem soleimani from the battlefield appear that america's main allies, for 21 years, general qasem soleimani commanded the quds force, saved american lives, including potentially israel, where directing iran's covert and overt warrant that this was going to military operations across the middle east. there's no doubt about that. happen —— where —— were warned. some he was actively plotting in the region to take big action that would have put dozens if not

0n the 27th of december, significant development in us say on cnn this morning. a us contractor was killed foreign policy, but wejust in a rocket attack on an iraqi significant development in us military base, an attack blamed foreign policy, but we just don't know yet on the basis of a few president trump's decision to remove on an iranian—backed militia. qasem soleimani from the battlefield saved american lives, there is no tweets and cryptic comments from the secretary of state, we don't know doubt about that. he was actively plotting in the region to take what the thread here was that has two days later, the us responded changed. after all, they have set action that would have put dozens if themselves this man has been not hundreds of american lives at orchestrating the killings of with air strikes on his brother risk. we know it was imminent, this americans for 20 years so what was was an intelligence based different now is a question people keep asking. gary, thank you very assessment. the american people also hezbollah bases in the middle east, killing 25 fighters. much. let's talk now to the editor know the history of qasem soleimani, on december 31st, the us embassy in baghdad was attacked in chief at the iran front page by a furious crowd, encouraged hundreds of american lives on his by iranian—backed militia leaders. and senior research fellow hands, too. the pentagon said general soleimani at the center for middle east was preparing further strategic studies, abas aslani. attacks on the us in iraq. america will be bracing itself for to deter those attacks, the response of the coming days, said the pentagon, a us drone strike whether that be military targets or killed general qasem soleimani. thank you forjoining us. it's a very significant day obviously for a even commercial targets around the very significant day obviously for a very significant day obviously for a very significant day obviously for world including potentially soft the assassination of this man, iran. what has been the reaction so general qasem soleimani, targets as far afield as europe. is probably the most significant far both from the government but event to happen in the middle east gary, thank you very much from since the iraq invasion in 2003. also the public? qasem soleimani has why? because he was not some fugitive washington. let's talk now to aniseh bassiri hiding out in mountain caves, been quite a popular figure tabrizi, research fellow at also the public? qasem soleimani has he was the iranian state, answering direct to been quite a popularfigure in the royal united services institute ayatollah khamenei. also the public? qasem soleimani has been quite a popular figure in the country, among the top three who joins me on webcam from italy. your assessment of this moment? ——
2:16 pm
this takes the us—iran tension officials in the country because of at this moment? definitely the his nonpartisan characteristic back situation is not looking good in to a new and dangerous plateau. terms of the prospect for at home. the reaction as i have been de—escalation and for any kind of already, the crowds seeing on social media as well as in engagement between the us and iran. were out in tehran today, the street, they are unhappy with we have to remember that less than a what has happened and they are fed shouting, "death to america." month ago, there were discussions about the prospect for that to be washington has warned iran not to retaliate for soleimani's death, up what has happened and they are fed up with what the united states have yet iran has vowed to take going somewhere after a prisoner its revenge in its own time done. 0n the other hand, we have and in its own way. swa p going somewhere after a prisoner swap and some positive exchanges frank gardner, bbc news. seen some reactions from the senior officials of the country. we had the between the iranian president and the us president over twitter. it let's talk now to former nato commander and mod director general, decision of the national security rear admiral dr chris parry. seems so long gone now and i think council, they have mostly voted that iran will take revenge. they say that the revenge will be certain and while both sides are still committed thank you forjoining us. we heard it's going to be proportionate, but frank saying the most significant they have not specified in terms of eventin frank saying the most significant event in the middle east since 2003, they have not specified in terms of the details of the revenge and we to not having an all—out war, the the iraq war. would you agree with have been hearing from the people in tensions are higher than ever. that sentiment? i think it's here that this action of the united probably the most newsworthy, i'm states which is a clear violation of not sure it will be the most president trump's tweets in the last significant event in retrospect. few minutes suggest that qasem the solvency of iran and bringing neither america nor iran is really escalation into the will have its soleimani killed or badly wounded thousands of americans over an prepared to go to war at the moment. own consequences and repercussions.
2:17 pm
extended period of time and was i think they are calibrating each plotting to kill many more. is that other‘s reactions, they are shadow—boxing, seeing how far they we have seen president trump credible? i think what came from the can push things. certainly, america is signalling right now, we know tweeting, contradicting what you're what you're up to, there is a red saying, so i'm interested in what line, if you cross the red line, we you make of his tweet he said, will react. did this general "iranians are not in morning for us side is what happened in iraq over the past few days. this is incontrovertibly cross them? we seen qasem soleimani, that he was not something that iran must have calculated somehow over the past few a tweet from president trump saying popular, and that iranian leaders might want to give the impression months. we have seen iran having a he was responsible directly and that the public is morning, but that is not the true impression, and more aggressive behaviour in the region towards the us but in a very indirectly for the deaths and wounding of hundreds of americans. calculated manner, in a way that implying the revenge attack from would not trigger an escalation or a is that provable? i think a lot of iran would not be supported by the military confrontation but over the what the americans have been saying iranian public —— iranians are not past few days, we have seen the strikes in iraq and we have seen the is, it has been implicit over the mourning." this is from the american last decade or so. what we will see attacks to the us embassy and now with his death, i think, are clearly this was perceived by the us these things becoming explicit and president but as american media put we will see the man and what his it, he has been telling lies several organisation has been up to for what side and president trump, who it really is and the americans have times andi more than enough justification for it, he has been telling lies several times and i would see this as a taking this man out. what about the newell i in that instance —— as a decided to confront iran in such a decisive manner. i think it's clear uk dimension? we were hearing from jessica parker a moment ago that new lie. what we have seen is that that the trump administration
2:18 pm
identified qasem soleimani as borisjohnson was not jessica parker a moment ago that boris johnson was not warned beforehand. given the special qasem soleimani has been very responsible for this decision and a popular in the country because he relationship, with that concern you? potential other decision that were not at all, my own experience in the has been fighting isis in the military is that targets such as looming in terms of targeting the us region, he went to iraq to help the interests and personnel in iraq so iraqi government to fight against general qasem soleimani only present to some extent i think what the themselves as targets for fleeting opportunities and i suspect that president is implying is that the this was a tactical decision made daesh as well as in syria but for action taken by iran over the past within the framework that if he few days indicated that iran was the americans, it is interesting more likely to target us interests shows himself, we are going to have that they have tried to assassinate a shot at him. i think the americans a figure who fought against daesh will be sending quite serious in iraq but i think as he himself m essa 9 es will be sending quite serious messages here, one is that you have indicated in a tweet, qasem and this is something contradictory, crossed a line over what has been americans have been claiming that they are fighting against terrorism soleimani was already behind so many happening in the previous months. we know that something was happening, attacks in iraq in the region that you were going to stir up some but have now been killing the enemy action, and we want to send a of terrorists and this is somehow serious message, don't mess with us, contradictory from the american the question about why now remains we are the united states i think pretty high. what is your assessment side. we have seen confusion and of president trump's suggestion that that more than anything will come the iranian people are not morning out of this. iran will say, how are miscalculation from the trump administration. they withdrew from we going to go forward with this? we the nuclear deal and this was general qasem soleimani?” will want to retaliate, but we do opposed by many countries in the the iranian people are not morning general qasem soleimani? i think iran is very divided and i think we world. do you think there is a not want to bring the whole night of have seen the division within the america unto us at the moment. the iranian government but also within
2:19 pm
regime in tehran is very weak possibility that, to a certain the iranian society over the past indeed. this is essentially a strike few months. we'd had a demonstration extent, with iranian support or against the iranian revolutionary taking place and we have seen iran iranian backed forces, miscalculated somehow supporting the general with in iraq when the american contractor was killed a week ago and then guard who have been destabilising the gulf in the region for the last a discussion about his potential decade or so so i think it is a role in the looming presidential earlier this week when the us careful message here from the united states, we a re embassy was attacked by protesters elections, but especially, his careful message here from the united states, we are going after the and some parts of it set on fire, iranian revolutionary guards, not iranian revolutionary guards, not growing support from within a iran itself. we'rejust was that a miscalculation which iranian revolutionary guards, not those involved might now regret. society because of what he iran itself. we're just seeing another couple of tweets coming in represented which was the resistance against hegemonic power in the from donald trump saying that the american forces as a result of the united states has paid iraq billions region, but at the same time, i of dollars a year for many years on invasion and sanctions on the top of all else we have done for country and what has happened... think the reason is a highly divided them. society. some iranians will not be very happy about what happened and these are pouring into the streets citizens in the region are hailing especially in the hometown of the the united states and so these kind where will all of this leave the general. some others will be of reactions are somehow normal if considering this as a symbolic relationship between the united you are in the region against the states and iraq ? relationship between the united states and iraq? this is obviously an attack carried out on iraqi soil. american forces, but what the american forces, but what the gesture that undermines the military we have to remember that iran american administration did by attacking a base in iraq was power and adventurism in the region, supports a particular faction but i think overall the iranians are we have to remember that iran supports a particularfaction in iraq, the predominantly shia disproportionate even to assume it
2:20 pm
very concerned about the potential implications of this development in was revenge from the american forces, they violated the iraqi terms of their security, the prospect for military escalation, same in iraq. i think they are very sovereignty according to the element, and there is a sunni security agreement between iraq and the united states, they can only element, and there is a sunni concerned about what this means for element, and there has been a lot of support for what has happened in the prospect of peace and stability iraq and. quite a lot of the in the region, but also in their own disorder that is happening at the provide some equipment, but a countries. thank you forjoining us. moment and will in future as well. military strike killing hundreds of to that extent, america must not get iraqi citizens, american helicopters an employment tribunal has ruled that ethical veganism mixed up in the factional politics threatening iraqi protesters, to is a philosophical belief of this. iraq has to stand on its and is therefore protected by law. own two feet, it will want to stand shoot them down, these are clear on its own two feet. at the moment, the case was brought by a man you have a iranian backed militias violations of the iraqi sovereignty as well as the international law so who says he was unfairly sacked all over the country that is by the league against cruel sports after disclosing it invested destabilising and killing people and i think what the americans have all sorts of illicit activities are pension funds in firms done, this is something in relation involved in animal testing. going on. they will want that to to the trump situation. so you are jordi casamitjana has been speaking stop. but looking on social media outside the court today, and listening to people in iraq and here is some of what he had to say. saying it is disproportionate?m i'm extremely happy. i obviously iran, not everybody is deprecating was not proportionate even if you wa nt to was not proportionate even if you want to assume that there was this. certainly i think hysterical wa nted i'm extremely happy. i obviously wanted this verdict. i didn't expect revenge and this caused a backlash to have it so soon but i think what and probably simplistic reactions from some of our own politicians don't help here. it does show is the strength of the in iraqi society against the
2:21 pm
