Last week, a U.S. drone strike killed the commander of the Iranian Quds Force Gen. Kassem Soleimani and several other high-level figures connected to Iran’s deadly efforts in Iraq and beyond. Iran is vowing revenge and is even putting a bounty on the head of President Trump.

Listen to the podcast as Radio America’s Greg Corombos gets answers to these questions and more from Alireza Jafarzadeh, deputy director of the Washington office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran.
