The threat was made almost one year to the day after the death of Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike ordered by President Donald Trump.

Chilling audio reveals threat to fly a plane into the Capitol building on the day Congress confirms Joe Biden’s win to ‘avenge’ the death of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani
FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: The FBI and FAA are investigating the message that was heard by multiple air traffic controllers in New York, according to CBS. The threat, delivered via a digitized voice, said: ‘We are flying into the Capitol Wednesday. Soleimani will be avenged.’ Congress plans to confirm Joe Biden’s win at the Capitol on Wednesday.
The threat was made almost one year to the day after the death of Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike ordered by President Donald Trump. It is not yet clear who sent the message and the threat is not believed to credible, CBS reports, but the Pentagon and other agencies were briefed on Tuesday.
It is being investigated as a breach of aviation frequencies, which is a crime.
Any breach is concerning as it could be used to interfere with the messages pilots receive about how and where to fly their planes. CBS states that air traffic controllers were told today to report any unusual activity that may suggest that a plane is deviating from the flight path they were given.
Soleimani was regarded as the architect of Iran’s foreign policy in the Middle East who saturated the battlefields of Iraq with high-tech IEDs to mutilate US soldiers. Soleimani was killed in a missile fired from a USAF MQ-9 Reaper aircraft along with Iraqi commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis as their motorcade pulled out of Baghdad airport on January 3, 2020.
The killing of the second-most powerful man in Iran came at the height of tensions in the region, with numerous assaults on US personnel and on the embassy in the Iraqi capital, as well as the shooting down of a US drone over the Persian Gulf and the impounding of oil tankers.
IN JUNE 2020, A PROSECUTOR IN TEHRAN ISSUED AN ARREST WARRANT FOR TRUMP AND DOZENS OF OTHER WASHINGTON OFFICIALS, SAYING THAT THEY WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR ‘MURDER AND TERRORISM.’
Earlier on Tuesday, Iranian officials issued a second arrest warrant for Trump over the drone stroke that killed the top general. Trump along with 47 other US officials were the subject of an Interpol ‘red notice’ request for their involvement in the drone strike in Baghdad last year.
‘THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN IS VERY SERIOUSLY FOLLOWING UP ON PURSUING AND PUNISHING THOSE WHO ORDERED AND EXECUTED THIS CRIME,’ JUDICIARY SPOKESMAN GHOLAMHOSSEIN ESMAILI TOLD REPORTERS.
On Tuesday, Trump also hit Iran with new sanctions as he seeks to deprive the county of revenues as his presidential term winds down. Iran is a decades-long American nemesis that has been a target of blame for much of the Middle East’s instability.
