On Thursday, the US House of Representatives passed a bill limiting President Donald Trump’s ability to engage in a military conflict with Iran, days after he issued orders to strike a drone that killed the senior Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani. The bill passed 224 votes to 194, and the vote is still in progress.

The United States had targeted the commander of the Iranian Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, last Friday, minutes after his arrival at Baghdad International Airport, accompanied by a number of leaders of the popular crowd in Iraq, which triggered a series of hostile statements exchanged between Washington and Tehran, which eventually resulted About an Iranian missile attack on American military bases in Iraq.

The United States, in a letter to the UN Security Council, on Wednesday considered that the killing of Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, was in self-defense and vowed to take new action “if necessary” to protect its soldiers and interests. It also said the US ambassador to the United Nations, Kelly Kraft, in the message that Washington “is ready to enter without preconditions in serious negotiations with Iran to prevent international peace and security from being exposed to further danger or to prevent an escalation by the Iranian regime.”

“The killing of Soleimani in Baghdad on Friday was justified under Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations”, Kraft wrote in the letter, seen by Reuters. “The United States is prepared to take additional measures in the region if necessary to continue protecting its soldiers and interests”.

The decision of the US House of Representatives comes in the context of the war waged by Trump’s Democratic opponents, who control most of his seats, at the White House, with the aim of tarnishing his image before the start of the upcoming presidential elections in November of this year, which amounted to demanding his removal, in a campaign led by  Nancy Pelosi.
