“Iran will respond proportionally”
Iran’s Defense Minister warns that Iran’s next responses will be proportionate to what the United States will do.
Hours after the Iranian missile attack on American bases in Iraq, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said that Tehran’s next response to the attack on top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani will be proportionate to what Washington will do.
“Of course, our next move will be proportionate to what the Americans will do. Our actions will definitely continue, ”the minister told reporters on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, adding that the early morning blow had given the US a lesson that was burned into their brains.
The statement was made hours after Iran responded to US missiles that hit two US bases in Iraq following the US’s assassination of the well-known Iranian counterterrorism commander, Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and Iraqi commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.
The Iranian Secretary of Defense said Donald Trump made the US government a terrorist when he ordered the murder of a military officer of the Islamic Republic of Iran in a third country where he was a guest of the Baghdad government.
