In breaking news, a Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander today issued a warning during a military drill, on the latest U.S. sanctions.
Iran’s missiles will come roaring down on the country’s enemies if they do wrong, a senior commander in Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard was quoted as saying in a Saturday report from semi-official Tasnim news agency.
Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, chief of the Guard’s airspace division, said: “If the enemy makes a mistake, our roaring missiles will come down on them.”
He added: “Knowing the capabilities of our Armed Forces, I assure you that foreign threats cannot do us any harm,” Iran’s Fars news reported.
Hajizadeh said Washington criticism of recent Iranian missile tests was “a pretext to show their animosity towards us; we are making round-the-clock efforts to defend our country’s security and if the enemy dares to make any mistake our roaring missiles will land on them.”
Hajizadeh’s comments came during a Revolutionary Guard military exercise aimed at testing its missile and radar systems. The exercise was taking place in a 35,000-square-kilometer (13,515-square-mile) area in Semnan province in northern Iran.
The exercise came a day after US President Donald Trump’s administration imposed sanctions on Iran in response to a recent missile test. The sanctions target more than two dozen people and companies from the Persian Gulf to China.
The news came in apparent defiance of the new sanctions imposed by the Trump administration when Iran held a military exercise Saturday to test missile and radar systems.
In a tweet Friday morning (U.S. Time), Trump wrote, “Iran is playing with fire — they don’t appreciate how ‘kind’ President Obama was to them. Not me.”
