Tehran's prosecutor, Al-Qasimehr made the remarks in a meeting with high-ranking judicial officials and said, "Iran's Judiciary has issued an arrest warrant for a total of 36 individuals involved in the assassination of Lt".

Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Revolutionary Guards' elite Quds Force and one of the most respected figures in Iran, was killed in a U.S. drone strike in January during a goodwill visit to Iraq.

Iran has issued an arrest warrant for US President Donald Trump and 35 others over the killing of top general Qassem Soleimani and has asked Interpol for help, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on Monday, according to the Fars news agency.

He stated that Iran requested that a "red notice" be put out for Trump and the others, which is the highest level of arrest request issued by the Interpol.

Alqasimehr stressed that Iran would continue to pursue Trump's prosecution even after his presidency ends.

In his respond, Trump warned Tehran that the United States will target 52 Iranian sites if Iran attacks Americans.

In the early hours of January 8, the IRGC fired dozens of ballistic missiles at a military airbase hosting USA forces in Iraq as part of its promised "tough revenge" for the US terrorist attack.

It is nearly certain Interpol would not grant Iran's request as its guideline for notices forbids it from "undertaking any intervention or activities of a political" nature.
