Just moments after the missiles were launched against US targets in Iraq, a top adviser to Iran’s supreme leader posted an image of the Iranian flag on social media.
It comes after Donald Trump on Friday tweeted an image of the American flag after news emerged that general Soleimani had been killed in a drone strike.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has warned the US and its regional allies against retaliating over the missile attacks in Iraq.
It issued the warning via a statement carried by Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency:
“We are warning all American allies, who gave their bases to its terrorist army, that any territory that is the starting point of aggressive acts against Iran will be targeted.”
