ayatollah ali come in a slow money was a trusted confidant a member of his inner circle his killing in a targeted attack the most extreme escalation in tensions between tehran and washington in recent years come and he warned there will be revenge the cruelest people on earth assassinated the honorable commander who courageously fought for years against the evils and bandis of the world so i moneys martyrdom well make iran more decisive to resist america's expansionism and to defend our islam it values would no doubt iran and other freedom seeking countries in the region will take his revenge into her own senior leaders met in an emergency meeting of iran's national security council many iranians see the u.s. attack as an act of war across the region there will be implications anywhere where there is an american military presence. americans should should leave those countries immediately but if i was in the emirates i would leave now if i was an
7:04 pm
american in iraq i would leave now if i was an american any part in southwest asia i would leave immediately. the united nations high commissioner for human rights described the killings as a likely violation of international law the idea that iran is not going to respond is wishful thinking that will make the debacle of of invading iraq look like a walk in the park i do not think the president trying really understands what he's got in the united states into going up against iran i would argue that going to war with iran will be the most significant adversary that the united states has encountered since world war 2 us secretary of state michael impale tweeted a video showing iraqis celebrating the attack feared by his enemies inside iran so the money has for years been one of the most popular national figures in the country the international face of iranian resistance to american pressure he
7:05 pm
remained largely untouched by the waning popularity in recent years of the country's government over economic issues. while there is talk of revenge many iranians don't want to see a war but not totally sure i'm going to tell you mr trump unfortunately acted decisively saying that we won't go for war but push the issue toward the leaders must exercise restraint so that the tension in the region wouldn't increase further because this can have very serious consequences for the countries in the region. it will definitely increase violence but i fundamentally disagree with violence and conflict i believe people moving toward peace in negotiation to stick goals is much better. already told. iranians looked on as someone who could protect them cut down at the height of his popularity by a u.s. strike his death marks the lowest point in iran u.s. relations in decades. well solomon his
7:06 pm
assassination has worsened the crisis between iran and the united states and has raised concerns about the retaliation from iran that's likely to follow u.s. president donald trump's which is about the attack in the last hour he said general cousins of the money has killed or badly wounded thousands of americans over an extended period of time and force into kill many more but got caught he was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people including the recent large number of protesters killed in iran itself let's get more now from our fishery he's pants again allan just talk us through some of the reaction that we've heard from the united states. well i think it's important to say 1st of all the put him you see behind me is normally where they would hold briefings if there was an event like this and there is no plans for a briefing
7:07 pm
a tall on friday there's no sign of mark esper who is of course the defense secretary secretary of state my point here and he's been doing the rounds of american media he says that after this attack to the sites of action by the president of the united states that americans are safer but there's a contradiction there as well because while he's claiming americans are safer there's also an advisory from his very own state department are doing americans in iraq to perhaps leave the country there's going to be concern on capitol hill as well normally senior figures of congress are informed before a strike of this kind that includes both republicans and democrats senior figures on military and intelligence committees it appears from what we can gather that that simply hasn't happened this time but mcconnell who is the senior republican and the senate the leader of the senate his spokesman refused to comment on whether or not he was informed that's very unusual kevin mccarthy who is the leader of the
7:08 pm
republicans in the house we don't he was informed because he was actually go donald trump's private estate where he's spending the christmas and new year's vacation he posted a picture saying it was a brave decision by donald trump and we also hear from lindsey graham who is a close friend of donald trump a republican as well he is in florida it is seems that he too was informed so people who were in and around the trump orbit in the last 24 hours could well have been informed but it seems that the formal process to inform senior figures in the house and the senate simply did not happen that's a problem because of course might pompei or is saying look we acted because there was evidence that there was an immediate threat to americans and so those on both sides will want to see what that evidence was because being a doubt. this is a big step that the united states have taken this isn't the same as targeting someone like al baghdadi the leader of isis this is targeting someone who is very
7:09 pm
much part of the arrhenius government who is right there in the cabinet who is an advisor to the supreme leader and so they will want to see the evidence that made the intelligence community go to donald trump and say this is a short we have to take it and of course the president giving the go ahead there's also the question too on where this stands legally nancy pelosi who is the leader in the house the democratic leader she has said look there was no authorize use of military force against iran passed through congress and so we have to worry about the legality of this but there is widespread praise on the republican side that donald trump has taken this action donald trump himself saying he targeted a man who is responsible for the death of hundreds of american servicemen and injured the injuries to thousands more ok alan fischer reporting live from the pentagon thank you very much indeed let's get reaction now from iran al-jazeera
7:10 pm
star suggest bari is live in terror ron and what has the reaction been in iran. well there's been a huge sense of shock and loss and grief really across the board ranging from the ordinary average iranian that we've spoken to to the highest level of the establishment that would be the supreme leader himself we've also just been hearing from the national submissive 3 national security council that is a body that is tasked with one of the things that they're in charge of is their own foreign policy it's headed by the president hassan rouhani under the guidance of the supreme leader this body had an emergency meeting today and they've just come out with a statement saying that they've made a decision about what they're going to do and that in due time the united states will see iran's response that appropriate response that iran has decided to take so
7:11 pm
it's really now a matter of wait and see how iran will respond but in terms of what has happened there is a huge sense of disbelief anger and shock that is how i would describe the general mood and feeling in the country at the moment and so the money wasn't just the military commander he was so much more to many iranians he was a national hero on many levels he was. attributed to the fact that i still never set foot on the iranian soil he was tasked with and his divisions were tasked with guarding the borders of iran and not allowing foreign terrorists to enter the country so if there's a huge sense of loss and grief ok live in tehran thank you. 11 and foreign ministry has condemned the killing and asked the country to be spared from any repercussions this comes after hezbollah's leader issued a statement following to pursue the punishments of those who are behind so the money is killing us on this roller said it's the responsibility of all fighters
7:12 pm
around the world he said they will work day and night see achieve his goals. the israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu has cut short his trip to greece this is what he had to say before leaving athens just as israel has the right of self-defense the united states is exactly the same right cousin suliman is responsible for the deaths of american citizens and many other innocent people he was planning more such attacks president trump deserves all the credit for acting swiftly forcefully decisively israel stands with the united states in its just struggling for peace security and self-defense thank you. lawrence korb is a former u.s. assistant secretary of defense he says it's likely that the united states will see solomon his death as a protective measure. i think the united states' justification is going to be if
7:13 pm
this was a preemptive attack that we killed the 2 our military leaders that to prevent them from attacking our more american men and women in iraq and remember we're there legally this time this is not the invasion we left in 2011 iraqis asked us to come back so when they're at their request and the idea that the a rainy and lead the popular you know military forces are trying to get us out that's acting illegally where they are very legally we have only thing we've been doing is going after isis we have not attacked iran so i think united states probably has pretty good information that soul of manet was behind these attacks which of that you know there were 11 attacks one ended up you know killing an american and that he was coming into play and more attacks and so that's why you know we decided that we needed to take to take them out and i guess the real
7:14 pm
question is the ball now is in iran's court how are they going to respond they're having the meeting what will what will they do well there's no doubt about the fact and i think earlier you want your heads on a statement or a tweet from senator chris murphy from connecticut and then he said you know what is the authorization and i agree we do need a new authorization we can't rely on what was passed back in 2001 and say that that justifies you know what the what the president is you know and has has done and again under international law i would disagree in the sense that we were invited back why iraq and somebody attacked our forces who are they are legally so i think that that that that is a little bit you know nebulous here about you know whether we violated international law. because our troops were not attacking any arabian or arabian
7:15 pm
associated forces there we were focused only on isis and training to your rock be no more terror this was much different than when we invaded back in 2003 which everybody agrees was you know was the war going to do so to come on al-jazeera will bring you the clean up operation in tunisia as capital after some of the worst flooding in decades. hello there plenty of snow flurries around northern sections of asia about that cold air in place quite a bit of cat is being streamed through in the last few hours and sunny plenty of cloud as well as you can see here coming through the interior of the china so as you have 1st of all across the korean peninsula some cloud but it should be mostly dry not about across into honshu it's really a kite where we're going to see the chance of some snow flurries over the next
