Iranian woman in US stabs date in revenge for killing of top Iran general

An Iranian-American woman allegedly stabbed her date in Las Vegas as revenge for the US killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. 

On Saturday, Nika Nikoubin was charged with attempted murder for allegedly luring a man she met on the dating site Plenty of Fish. 

She later explained that her plan was not to kill the man but “wanted revenge” against “US troops for the  2020 killing of of Qassem Soleimani”. She advised that there are injustices, in particular the killing of Qassem Soleimani in Iran. 

It remains unclear why she chose to stab her date and whether he has any connection to Soleimani. The man’s condition was not available. 

Nikoubin, a Las Vegas resident, faces charges of attempted murder, battery, and burglary of a business.
