Iranian press agency posts video of assassin targeting US President

A disturbing video shows an Iranian actor posing as a gunman and aiming at US President Donald in a mocked-up assassination attempt. 

The video emerged as Tehran vows bloody revenge for the killing of top commander Qasem Soleimani on Friday.

The video caption reads 'Hey US, if you begin the war, we will end the war.' 

It was released as Iran has vowed to take 'severe revenge' for the killing of Soleimani, who was widely seen as one of the most powerful men in the Middle East, ordered by the White House on Friday. 

General Soleimani's death has sparked calls across Iran for revenge against America for a killing that has drastically raised tensions across the region.  

It comes as one of Iran's vice presidents, Massoumeh Ebtekar, said had made a 'serious miscalculation' and referred to a 'wave of awakening' across the Western world in the wake of Soleimani's death, in an interview with CNN on Tuesday. 

Ebtekar, the current Vice President of Iran for Women and Family Affairs, said that the outrage at his death was not just limited to Iran and claimed that many countries including across Europe and the US, understand the 'terrible actions of the American government'.

Ebtekar said: 'I'm sure that they regret what they've done because the response is not only limited to Iran. We see this wave of awakening in many countries in the world, in many European countries... 

'In the US, the people in the US, their reactions, I've been seeing some of this on the social networks, on Twitter. 

'This is an awakening. The people now understand very well what has happened and the terrible actions of the American government.'
