A United Nations special rapporteur determined that the United States killed senior Iranian generalsSulaymani et al. violated international law and are scheduled to submit a report to the UN Human Rights Council on the 9th. The United Nations Special Rapporteur for out-of-court executions, Anas Karamad, told Reuters on the 6th that the United States did not provide sufficient evidence to prove that before the killing of Sulaymani and others, the interests of the United States faced imminent danger, and the assault was improper. The White House said Sulaymani planned to attack US personnel and institutions outside Iran, posing an”imminent threat.” According to US President Trump, Sulaymani planned to attack the US embassy. However, the US government did not produce evidence. (Reporter Wu Baoshu)
