Iran announced the end of its reprisals against the United States
Follow up – Mawazine News: Iran announced the end of its reprisals against the United States in response to the assassination of the commander of the “Quds Force” in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Major General Qassim Soleimani.
In response to a question from the Russian “TASS” agency about his country’s response to the US President Donald Trump’s speech regarding the recent escalation, Iran’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Majeed Takht Rawanji, said: “All of our operation was equivalent to the death of Qassem Soleimani, and it was terminated.”
He added: “In the event that the United States does not take any military measures against Iran, we will not, on our side, take any such steps.”
The Iranian delegate indicated that his country worked in full conformity with Article 51 of the United Nations Charter, and implemented its right to self-defense, and said: “But Iran will have no alternative way to respond if the United States takes the decision to launch new military operations.”
And the Iranian Revolutionary Guard carried out, on Tuesday night to Wednesday, a massive missile attack targeting American forces at the Ain al-Assad bases in Anbar and Harir in Arbil, Iraq, in response to the operation carried out by the United States on January 3 near Baghdad airport that killed Soleimani.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards said that the missile attack killed 80 American soldiers, while the United States denied there were deaths among its forces.
Commenting on the attack, US President Donald Trump said that “everything is fine”, noting that his country has “the strongest army in the world”, while the Pentagon indicated that it was conducting an assessment of the situation and is studying ways to respond to the strike.
