The report, which was taken from a Kuwait newspaper,  comes amid massive waves of protests and acts of civil disobedience that are sweeping through the streets of Tehran and major cities across the Shiite republic.

While questions of the validity of the report have arisen, the article quoted an unnamed source as saying that “there is an American-Israeli agreement” that Soleimani is a “threat to the two countries’ interests in the region.”

The report stated that an agreement had been made between Israel and the United States and that Israel came very close to assassinating the commander of the Quds force, Qassem Soleimani but that the US thwarted the plan.
