Iran : Commander says more air strikes were planned against US

Strikes against US forces in Iraq
Strikes against US forces in Iraq could have been just the beginning of a major operation across the region if the US had responded, a senior Iranian commander is reported as saying.


Quoted by state TV, Amir Ali Hajizadeh said the only fitting revenge for Gen Qasem Soleimani's killing by the US was to drive US forces from the region.

His remarks came a day after Iran fired missiles at bases housing US forces.

This was a response to Soleimani's death in a Baghdad drone strike.

  3. “The missile strikes on one of the most important bases of the US in the form of an operation code-named ‘Martyr Soleimani’ were the start of a major operation that would continue throughout the region,” Brigadier General Hajizadeh said on Thursday.

    “We did not aim to kill (anybody)” the top commander said, adding, “We intended to hit the enemy’s military machine.”

    “We fired 13 missiles at the (US) bases in Iraq, although we had prepared several hundred missiles for launching,” he stated.

    “We did not seek to kill anyone in this operation,” he said, adding, “However, tens of people were killed and wounded.”

    “We could mount the operation in a way that 500 would be killed in the first step and, if they responded, in the second and third steps, their casualties would have reached 4,000 to 5,000,” Brigadier General Hajizadeh went on to say.
