Things are escalating quickly in the middle-east as news comes in that top Iranian General Qassem Suleimani was killed in a Trump ordered Drone strike.
The Guardian reports:
The White House said Donald Trump ordered an air strike that killed powerful Iranian general Qassem Suleimani in Baghdad in the early hours of Friday, in a dramatic escalation of an already bloody struggle between Washington and Tehran for influence across the region.
Suleimani, who ran Iranian military operations in Iraq and Syria, was targeted while being driven from Baghdad airport by local allies from the Popular Mobilisation Units (PMU). The deputy head of the PMU, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes, a close Suleimani associate, was also killed in the attack.
“This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans,” the Pentagon said in a statement, adding that the US would continue to take necessary action to protect Americans and interests around the world.
We expect things to escalate further over the next few days, we’ll keep you posted as the stroy develops.
In the meantime, expect Gold, Silver and Oil prices to start rapidly moving to the upside.
