RNA – In a statement on Wednesday morning, Major General Mohammad-Hoseyn Baqeri said the missile attacks by the IRGC Aerospace Force in the early hours of Wednesday against the United States military bases in Iraq gave a warning to the “terrorist American regime’s” authorities.
He said the attacks on the American forces in Iraq revealed only a tiny part of the capabilities of the Iranian Armed Forces and was carried out in response to the American terrorist move to assassinate General Soleymani.
“From now on, any new evil act by the United States will face a stronger and more crushing response with a broader range,” the senior Iranian general added.
“The time has come for the evil authorities of the United States to realize the Islamic Republic of Iran’s capabilities in a greater extent of global geography, adopt a principled approach, and pull the forces of their terrorist army out of the region as soon as possible,” Baqeri underlined.
According to Tasnim News Agency, in the early hours of Wednesday, the IRGC targeted two American airbases in Iraq, including the American airbase of Ayn al-Asad in Anbar province in western Iraq, in retaliation for the United States’ assassination of top Iranian anti-terror commander, General Soleymani.
