The Head of the Security Department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Iran, Abdollah Araghi, after missile attacks on American targets, said that the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps “will take a more severe revenge on the enemy”, Tasnim reports.

“In fact, the IRGC is one of the strongest weapons of the leadership (of Iran) and will take revenge on the enemy more severely in the near future”, – Araghi said.

On Wednesday night, the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps announced a retaliation operation for the assassination of General Kassem Soleimani as a result of an American special operation in Iraq.

According to Washington, none of the US citizens was injured in the blow, only material damage was done.
