A terrifying video has been published claiming to show the exact moment when a missile hit Qasem Soleimani. Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was killed in an airstrike the US launched in response to Monday’s siege of their Baghdad Embassy. The attack has prompted Iran’s Supreme Leader to threaten retaliation for the killing, warning Washington to expect a “crushing revenge” for the death of Iran’s second-most-powerful military commander.
In the shaky video, loud explosions and shouts can be heard from outside.
The people filming the video hide inside a building.
However, when they film outside, a large fiery explosion can be seen hitting something not too far away.
It is believed to be the convoy that was carrying Qasem Soleimani and Iraqi paramilitary leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis around Baghdad Airport.

Former Special Presidential Envoy, Brett McGurk told MSNBC that this action now means the US is in a “state of war” with Iran.
He said: “I think we need to presume now, as a country, like it or not, we need to presume that we are in a state of war with Iran.”
“This has been a covert war, a shadow war for 40 years. But with this action, I think we need to presume, to protect our people in the region, to protect our interests, that we’re in a state of war with Iran.
“That is not something that the Trump administration appears to have been prepared for.”
