New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said security officials in the city raised the alert for possible Iranian retaliation against a US air strike in Baghdad on Friday, which killed Qassem Soleimani, Tehran’s most prominent military chief.

New York Mayor said in a press conference, “We must assume that this action (air strike) puts us in a situation De facto war”.
