What’s behind the attack ordered by Trump that caused Suleimani’s death?

President Trump gave the direct order to carry out the airstrike that led to the death of Iranian General Suleimani. Trump justified the action as an act of defense.

Joseph Humire mentioned to France 24 that the attack was a high-level counterterrorism operation and a response to the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, but also to previous attacks by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, which resulted in the death of an American contractor.
