Iran’s Supreme Leader Calls Missile Strikes ‘A Slap In The Face’ Of US


Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has called the overnight missile attacks on US airbases in Iraq a “slap” in America’s face, while commenting on the Islamic Republic’s prompt response to the killing of the country’s top-ranking Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani late last week by the US.

In the early hours of Wednesday, Iran launched two missile attacks on American targets in Iraq in response to the assassination of its top military commander, General Soleimani by the US. There is no official information on the number of casualties among US troops yet.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif echoed the stance, arguing the US assessment of Tehran’s missile attacks should not be based on “illusions” as they were carried out in “legitimate self-defence”.
