Iran Says Operation Completed, Threatens Israel With Bigger Response If Attacked

………To Hit U.S. Bases If Washington Backs Counterattack

Iranian top commanders issued a warning to Israel on Sunday, stating that any retaliation to overnight drone and missile strikes would result in a more significant attack. They also communicated to Washington not to support any military actions from its ally.

“Our response will be much larger than tonight’s military action if Israel retaliates against Iran,” Iran’s armed forces chief of staff Major General Mohammad Bagheri told state TV, adding that Tehran warned Washington that any backing of Israeli retaliation would result in US bases being targeted.

“If the Zionist regime (Israel) or its supporters demonstrate reckless behavior, they will receive a decisive and much stronger response,” Iran’s president Ebrahim Raisi said in a statement.

According to Times of Israel, the commander of the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Hossein Salami, also warned that Tehran would retaliate against any Israeli attack on its interests, officials or citizens.

Iran said it has completed its retaliatory operation against but would not hesitate to strike again should Israel retaliate.

Iran said its response was justified after a suspected Israeli air strike on its embassy compound in Damascus on April 1 that killed officers of the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps

Hamas jumped to Tehran’s defence after the attack.

“We in Hamas regard the military operation conducted by the Islamic Republic of Iran a natural right and a deserved response on the crime of targeting the Iranian consulate in Damascus and the assassination of several leaders of the Revolutionary Guards,” the Palestinian group said in a statement.

Israel is engaged in a war, now in its seventh month, with Hamas after the Gazan terror group killed nearly 1,200 people and abducted 253 in an onslaught on October 7.

As of April 8, 2024, over 33,000 Palestinians have been reported as killed in the Israel–Hamas war, including 95 journalists (90 Palestinian, 2 Israeli and 3 Lebanese) and over 224 humanitarian aid workers, including 179 employees of UNRWA.

Israel reported modest damage and reopened its airspace after Iran launched a large wave of around 300 attack drones and missiles in the first-ever direct attack on the Jewish state by the Islamic republic, while the United States said it would discuss a diplomatic response with major powers on Sunday.

CNN reports that Iran’s IRGC leader has warned that a “new equation” was created after its attack on Israel and that it will now respond directly whenever Israel attacks its interests, assets or people.

Iran’s Chief of Staff has also threatened the US and Israel against any future attacks. Sardar Bagheri, the Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces, said Iran sent a message to the US through the Swiss embassy warning Washington if it cooperates with Israel in their possible next actions, US bases will “not have any security” and will be “dealt with.”
