Iran continues to egg on the United States, as Iran’s chief of staff came out and said that the country is ready for a “decisive battle” with the US and Israel if they are attacked. This comes after recent actions of Iran sending ships to skim US waters in the Atlantic, airing a video of the destruction of of a US aircraft carrier and Israel, and firing two missiles that are meant to destroy all enemy military capabilities.
In the latest in a series of warnings against the US, Iran’s chief of staff Hassan Firouzabadi warned the Islamic republic’s foes that Iran is prepared for a “decisive battle” if attacked.
“We are ready for the decisive battle with America and the Zionist regime (Israel),” Fars news agency quoted Firouzabadi as saying Wednesday.
He also warned neighboring nations not to allow any attack to be launched on Iran from their soil.
“We do not have any hostility toward regional states, but if we are ever attacked from the American bases in the region we will strike that area back,” he said.
Washington has many military bases in the region, including in Bahrain, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
