Earlier today, the Pentagon confirmed that commander of Iran’s Quds Force has been killed in a United States air strike ordered by President Donald Trump.
Qasem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force unit, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy head of the Iran-backed Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), were among those killed in the attack at Baghdad International Airport.
With Iran expected to respond to the attack on its sovereignty by US, social media is already awash with reactions and talks of possible ‘World War 3’ if the situation is not properly managed.
See all the reactions below….

If Iran strikes a military base or an aircraft carrier in the region they will likely face a nuclear response from the Trump administration
If they order their terror cells in the U.S. to carry out attacks then they'll likely face even tougher sanctions and a military response https://t.co/SURSmbXZ5Q
