This is a document that the risk to talk about in the next few days. An expert of the united nations has concluded that the general iranian Qassem Soleimani had been killed arbitrarily and illegally during a u.s. raid in January in Iraq. An analysis strongly denounced by the United States on Wednesday. "There must be a certain intellectual dishonesty to publish a report that condemns the United States for having acted in legitimate self-defense while concealing the past well known to the general Soleimani, one of the worst terrorists in the world," said the spokesman of american diplomacy, Morgan Ortagus. "This report is misleading and off-putting undermine human rights by passing the sponge on terrorists and it proves once again that the United States had reason to leave" the Council of Human rights of the united nations, she added.
In a report sent Tuesday to the media by the UN, Agnès Callamard, special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary, or arbitrary, concludes that in "the absence of an imminent threat endangering the life, the way of acting of the United States was illegal" and violates the united Nations Charter. "In light of the evidence provided so far by the United States, the targeting of general Soleimani, and the death of those who accompanied him, are assassination, arbitrary, including the United States are responsible under international humanitarian law," says Agnès Callamard in his report.

To justify the order to kill the us president, Donald Trump had ensured after his death that Soleimani, as he described it, of "terrorist number one" in the world, was preparing attacks "imminent" against diplomats and the us military. Agnès Callamard rejects the argument advanced by Donald Trump, noting that the United States has not demonstrated that the general "was an imminent threat".
