Iran vows ‘more crushing response’ to any new US ‘mischief’

Iran’s armed forces chief of staff has warned that “any new mischief” by the United States will be met with “a more crushing and decisive response.”

“The time has come for the evil rulers of the United States to withdraw their terrorist army forces as quickly as possible from the region,” Major General Mohammad Baqeri said on Wednesday.

The overnight retaliation following US assassination of the Middle East’s most prominent anti-terror commander demonstrated only a fraction of the capabilities of the Iranian armed forces, he said in a statement. 

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) hit two US military bases in Iraq with dozens of precision-guided Fateh missiles shortly after Gen. Qassem Soleimani was laid to rest in his hometown of Kerman, with initial reports of many casualties.
