- Video was posted by Iranian state news agency Fars News Agency on January 10
- Shows Iranian officials plotting revenge for the killing of Qasem Soleimani
- Chanted they want to ‘go for the big fish’ while others said ‘target their heads’
The clip, which was first released on January 10 by the Fars News Agency shows Iranian officials planning their revenge for the killing of Qods Force commander Qasem Soleimani.
A group of men are seen gathering around a board which has a list of possible targets, which included US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, as well as Saudi Crown Prince Bin Salman.
Iranian officials can we heard saying they want to ‘go for the big fish’, while others say ‘we should target their head’.
Images from the video show leaders such as Donald Trump dead on the floor with fire around them
Actors pretending to be Iranian officials are seen looking at a wall of targets before saying they will ‘hit them’
Shocking footage then shows the Capitol Building in flames, before Iranian forces storm the White House.
Harrowing images then show what appears to be Donald Trump dead on the floor.
The Middle East Media Research Institute TV Monitor Project posted a transcript of the video, which includes TV voice clips of President Trump.
One man, using a walkie-talkie device says: “We have a report about a terror attack. Hajj Qassem’s vehicle was hit.”
A TV report is then played in the background which talks about the ‘martyrdom of Islam’s venerable general, Hajj Qassem Soleimani’.
Gangs of the men then wait around the White House and Capitol building before striking
The footage also showed images of the White House which were later showed to have been attacked
Iranian officials then go on to question who their main target would be and said: ‘A fish rots from the head down. We should target their head… If we want to hit them, tonight is the time.
‘I think we should think about it a bit more… C’mon, if you don’t want to hit them, don’t play with us.’
The circulation of the video comes as Iran announced its first arrests over the accidental shooting down of a Ukrainian passenger jet.
Today three countries in the EU launched a process charging Iran with failing to observe the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal, curtailing its nuclear programme.
Britain, France and Germany insisted they remained committed to the agreement, which has already been severely tested by the US exit from the accord in 2018.
But even as their statement was released, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson indicated he might prefer a comprehensive accord negotiated with US President Donald Trump instead of the 2015 deal.
The decision to begin the so-called dispute mechanism process comes as tensions soar between the West and Iran following the killing of top commander Qasem Soleimani in a US strike, and the admission by Tehran days later that it had accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airliner.
