An Iranian woman admitted trying to kill her PlentyOfFish date during sex at a Vegas hotel to avenge a US drone killing of a military leader – telling cops ‘it’s fair that American blood be spilled.’

Nika Nikoubin, 22, has been indicted on charges of attempted murder with the use of a deadly weapon because of certain, actual or perceived characteristics of a person, and two counts of battery.

She met her victim on the dating website before agreeing to meet the man at the Sunset Station hotel and rented a hotel room together before they started drinking.

Henderson Police body cam footage shows the moment that Nikoubin admitted to officers that she stabbed the man in the neck multiple times while on top of him having ‘intercourse’.

Nika Nikoubin, 22, was found naked by police officers after stabbing her victim in the neck multiple times as revenge for the death of  Qasem Soleimani in 2020.

Recalling the moment their sex turned violent, she said: ‘We were drinking a little bit and then — I guess we started to get into it and then I stabbed him.’ 

The cop also asked her: ‘Did you plan on meeting [the victim] to hurt him?’

She answered:  ‘Yes.’

Nikoubin was then asked: ‘You did. To kill him or just to hurt him?’

‘Hurt him,’ she answered.

Nikoubin, who was born in Iran, put a blindfold on the victim as they engaged in sexual activity, turned the lights off and then stabbed the victim in the neck.

She had moved to Las Vegas the week before the stabbing, with cops finding her naked in a utility area on the 14th floor of the hotel after the victim called 911.

Footage of her interview shows her covering herself with a towel and admitting that she met with the victim to ‘hurt him’, according to Fox 8.

Nikoubin then told officers that she wanted to get revenge for the US drone strike which killed Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani in 2020 – stabbing the victim with a pink knife.

When asked by officers why she stabbed the man she said: ‘I guess out of spite and revenge. I mean the U.S. killed Soleimani. Lots of blood spilled.

Gen. Qassem Soleimani (pictured center) was head Iran’s Quds force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. Nikoubin said his death was the reason she wanted ‘American blood spilled’

‘So, I feel like, it’s fair that American blood be spilled.’

Soleimani was killed in an air strike ordered by then-President Donald Trump, as he was the right-hand man to the country’s supreme leader.

Trump called him the ‘number-one terrorist anywhere in the world’ and ordered his death to protect ‘American diplomats and military personnel’ worldwide.

When cops asked her if she didn’t like Americans, Nikoubin replied: ‘Americans are cool. 

‘Just I don’t think it was fair. I just felt like somebody on American soil should die because he also died.’

Court documents show that the stabbing victim suffered at least two puncture wounds to his neck during the incident.

Nikoubin was diagnosed with generalized anxiety order, major depressive disorder and paranoid personality disorder – but a judge ruled that she was competent to stand trial

Nikoubin was diagnosed with generalized anxiety order, major depressive disorder and paranoid personality disorder – but a judge ruled that she was competent to stand trial.

Speaking to the grand jury, her victim said: ‘She turned off the light and then afterwards I started to feel a pressure on my neck, and it got sharp, so I panicked and said, “What the f*** are you doing?”

‘I screamed. And I shoved her off me, you know, still yelling. And then she says, ‘Sorry,’ and then she ran out of the room.’

Nikoubin posted $60,000 bail and was allowed to return to Texas on house arrest.

A spokesman for Nikoubin said she received mental health treatment and was employed pending trial.

He denied any political motivation for Nikoubin’s actions.

Soleimani was the head of Iran’s Quds force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, and believed to be responsible for Tehran’s backing for Shia proxies sowing unrest through the Middle East.

He was often described as the country’s most powerful figure after its supreme leader.

Last year, a United Nations expert said that without an imminent threat to life the strike was unlawful.

Agnes Callamard, special rapporteur on extrajudicial killings, concluded in her report that the U.S. provided no evidence that would have justified immediate action.

‘Major General Soleimani was in charge of Iran military strategy, and actions, in Syria and Iraq,’ she said.

‘But absent an actual imminent threat to life, the course of action taken by the US was unlawful.’

The strike was an ‘arbitrary killing’ for which the US is responsible under international human rights law, she concluded.
