Social media is in shock as the hashtags #worldwar3 and #WWIII top trends in Pakistan.
The reason behind this sudden trend is reportedly after the death of Iran Revolutionary Guards commander Qasem Soleimani, who died in Baghdad.
Soleimani was killed in a drone strike which was reportedly done on the orders of United States President, Donald Trump “in a decisive defensive action to protect US personnel abroad,” the Pentagon said Thursday.
The attack came amid tensions with the United States after a New Year’s Eve attack by Iran-backed militias on the US Embassy in Baghdad.
Confused netizens are panicking as the President welcomed 2020 with drone strikes.
Iran, on the other hand, has said that they will retaliate in a harsher manner.
