TEHRAN (Dispatches) -- The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said Monday the country’s missile strike on a U.S. base in Iraq in response to the assassination of Gen. Qassem Soleimani and his companions was legitimate defense while being of a strategic nature.
"The measure we took against the Americans was totally defensive. It was a legitimate defense, a legal defense, and a right, which we had to reclaim,” Major General Hussein Salami told Lebanese Al-Mayadeen news network.
