Hezbollah will attack Israel and the UAE if the United States retaliates to missile attacks carried out by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) states the Tasnim news agency.
“We in no way consider the Zionist regime (of Israel) to be separate from the criminal US regime in these crimes,” the IRGC warned in a statement.
“We warn the Great Satan, the bloodthirsty and arrogant regime of the US, that any new wicked act or further aggression (against Iran) will bring about more painful and crushing responses,” emphasised the IRGC.
The IRGC warned on their Telegram channel that they would attack Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Haifa in Israel if Iran is targeted, according to CNN.
Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles at targeted US bases in Iraq in retaliation for the killing of former IRGC Quds Force commander General Qasem Soleimani.
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said that “anyone who tries to attack us will suffer the most overwhelming blow. “We stand firm in front of our soul seekers.”
Netanyahu also said that Israel is completely behind the United States. “America has no better friend than Israel, and Israel has no better friend than the United States,” the PM said. “In recent years, the Trump administration has shown that fairness, justice and the truth stand before their eyes. I thank them with all my heart.”
US President Donald Trump said in a tweet (on Iranian Missiles Strikes) that an assessment of casualties and damage from the strikes was underway and that he would make a statement on Wednesday morning. “All is well!” Trump said in the Twitter post.
