Twitter reported on Saturday that an account connected to Iran’s supreme commander had been permanently disabled after it broadcast a video seeking vengeance against former US President Donald Trump for the killing of a key general.

A Twitter spokesperson informed AFP that 

The account referenced has been permanently suspended for violating our ban evasion policy.

This Monday, the account @KhameneiSite tweeted an animated video depicting an automated aircraft directed at Trump, who approved a drone strike in Baghdad two years ago that assassinated Iran’s Top commander General Qassem Soleimani.

The primary accounts of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in multiple languages are still functioning.

Last year, Twitter suspended another related account for a tweet that appeared to mirror Trump’s retaliation.

Khamenei’s official website also included a recent video titled

Revenge is Definite.

Twitter’s main objective, according to the platform, is to keep the public safe while also ensuring the protection of the platform’s dialogue.

The social media powerhouse professes to have clear regulations in place regarding abusive behavior and that it will take appropriate action if violations are discovered.

Soleimani was the creator of Iran’s Middle East strategy as the commander of the Quds Force, the Revolutionary Guards’ foreign operations wing.
