A propaganda video distributed by a state-controlled news agency in Iran depicted the false assassination of leaders such as President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The footage, which was first released on January 10 by the Fars News Agency, shows Iranian officials planning their revenge for the killing of the Qods Force commander Qasem Soleimani.
A group of men are seen gathering around a council that has a list of possible targets, including American Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Saudi Crown Prince Bin Salman.
Iranian officials may be heard to say they want to “look for big fish”, while others say “we should target their heads”.
The images in the video show leaders like Donald Trump dead on the floor with the fire around them
Actors pretending to be Iranian officials are seen looking at a wall of targets before saying they will “hit” them
A shocking film then shows the Capitol Building on fire, before Iranian forces storm the White House.
Heartbreaking images then show what appears to be Donald Trump dead on the floor.
The Middle East Media Research Institute’s Monitor TV project has released a transcript of the video, which includes video clips of President Trump’s TV.
A man, using a walkie-talkie device, says: “We have a report on a terrorist attack. Hajj Qassem’s vehicle has been hit.”
In the background, a television report is played that talks about “martyrdom of the venerable general of Islam, Hajj Qassem Soleimani ‘.

The footage also showed images of the White House which were later shown attached
Iranian officials then wonder who their main target would be and said: ‘A fish is rotting from the head down. We should target their heads … If we want to hit them, it’s time tonight.
“I think we should think about it a little more … Come on, if you don’t want to hit them, don’t play with us.”
The release of the video comes when Iran announced its first arrests for the accidental shooting down of a Ukrainian passenger plane.
Today three EU countries have started a process accusing Iran of not respecting the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal, limiting its nuclear program.
Britain, France and Germany insisted that they remained loyal to the deal, which has already been severely tested since the U.S. exit from the deal in 2018.
But even when their statement was released, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson indicated that he may prefer a global deal negotiated with U.S. President Donald Trump instead of the 2015 deal.
The decision to initiate the so-called dispute mechanism process comes when tensions rise between the West and Iran following the killing of high-level commander Qasem Soleimani in a U.S. strike and the admission of Tehran days after he had accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airliner.
