Iranian Armed Forces says if US retaliates, Iran’s response “will be stronger and more crushing”

Iranian Armed Forces chief of staff Major General Mohammad Baqeri said that if the US retaliates against Iran after strikes against US forces in Iraq, Tehran’s response “will be stronger and more crushing,” according to the state-run news agency IRNA.

Baqeri’s comments come after Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles at two Iraqi military bases that house US troops Wednesday.

Addressing the operation against the bases, General Baqeri said “it was just a small part of the capabilities” of Iranian forces.”Today, it is time for the wicked US officials to understand the Islamic Republic power and opt for a principled method to make its terrorist army leave the region.”
