Iran promises a “harsh retaliation” for the U.S bombing of an Iranian airport. During the strike, a top Iranian General was killed.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayattollah Ali Khamenei issued a warning to the United States. “Harsh retaliation is waiting” for the airstrike, he said. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called the bombing a “heinous crime” and warned that his country will “take revenge.”
As expected, this entire ordeal has strained the relationship with Iran’s government. It’s created a tense environment for soldiers on the ground and as a result, U.S forces have been ordered out of the country.
