Trump Ridicules Khamenei, Urges Tehran To 'Make Iran Great Again'

Missile attack a slap on US face: Khamenei

Khamenei said Soleimani's work of projecting Iran's military influence overseas would continue and said the Quds Force he commanded "protects oppressed nations across the region". There are more crises now than there were prior to the start of Trump's term, Rouhani said.

Delivering his first Friday prayers in eight years, Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei addressed the assassination of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, and the downing of a Ukrainian airliner, saying that Iranians must not forget Soleimani's sacrifice.

Trump responded to the comments on Twitter with a quip that Khamenei had "not been so Supreme lately".

In a series of tweets, US President Donald Trump hit back, urging Khamenei to "be very careful with his words". Khamenei used the platform to praise the country's retaliatory strike against the USA over the killing of one of its top generals.

The Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) Boeing 737-800 had just taken off from Tehran en route to Kyiv on January 8 when it crashed, killing all 176 people on board.

"The villainous US government repeatedly says that they are standing by the Iranian people".

He said Quds Force soldiers were "fighters without borders".

Seven missing after avalanche hits Nepalese trekking route
Two more South Koreans were due to arrive in Nepal on Sunday to help with the search, the country's foreign ministry said. A rescue operation is under way, but poor weather conditions and plunging temperatures have hampered efforts.

US President Donald Trump ordered the killing in a drone strike on January 3 of Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force, a unit of the Guards responsible for expanding Iran's influence overseas.

Regarding the accident of the Ukrainian airplane, Khamenei explained it as "a bitter accident" that "burned through our heart".

The Iranian leader said Western countries were too weak to "bring Iranians to their knees".

Ukrainian foreign minister Vadym Prystaiko said Friday that Ukraine wants Iran to issue a formal document admitting its guilt.

Khamenei also blasted Britain, France, and Germany, which launched a dispute mechanism over Iran's violations of the 2015 landmark nuclear agreement, starting a process that could lead to reimposing United Nations sanctions against Tehran.

Meanwhile, police were out in force ahead of the prayers, which follow several days of protests over the downing of the Ukrainian plane, AFP reported.
