If the US regime and its rogue allies launch any more attacks on Iran, they will incur “more painful and crushing responses,” the Islamic Revolutionary Guards of Iran warned, noting that the ‘Zionist regime’ of Israel would not be spared.
The IRGC issued a statement in the early hours of Wednesday local time, after launching a volley of missiles against two bases used by US forces inside Iraq, in retaliation for the drone assassination of IRGC Quds Force leader Qassem Soleimani outside Baghdad.
The statement, according to Tasnim news agency, also said that Tehran sees no difference between the “Zionist regime” – meaning Israel – and the USA when it comes to the “crime” of assassinating Soleimani.
This was presumably in reaction to reports that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu was trying to disassociate from the strike, calling it a purely American affair. However, Israel operates a squadron of fighter jets from bases in Saudi Arabia, for now only attacking Yemen so far.
The IRGC also put any regional US allies – such as Kuwait, Jordan, Saudi Arabia or Bahrain – on notice that their territory will be targeted if US bases on their soil are used to carry out strikes against Iran.
