Iran will not hesitate to retaliate against attacks on its soil

The United States on Friday launched a series of strikes against elite Iranian forces and pro-Iranian armed groups in Syria and Iraq in response to the January 28 killing of three American soldiers in Jordan. White House National Security Adviser Jack Sullivan said Saturday that the United States would continue its retaliation and did not want to rule out the possibility of direct strikes against targets located in Iran.

“The Islamic Republic will not hesitate to use its capabilities to give a response that upsets the aggressors,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Khanani responded at his weekly press conference on Monday. “Others have already seen this ability and power and will count a hundred times before doing anything bad,” he said.

Increased tension

On Saturday, the United States and the United Kingdom announced that they had bombed dozens of targets in Yemen in response to repeated attacks by Iran-backed Houthi rebels on shipping in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden. The Houthis say they are acting in “solidarity” with the Palestinians in Gaza, in the grip of war between the Israeli army and the Islamist movement Hamas.

The next day, US forces announced airstrikes against five missiles in Yemen that were poised to be launched against ships in the Red Sea.
