The United States and Israel are highly susceptible to Iranian retaliation if they launch military strikes against Iran, a senior Iranian military commander was quoted as saying on Tuesday.
Iran’s Press TV reported that Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, the deputy head of Iran’s armed forces joint chiefs of staff, asserted that the U.S. and Israel are in no position to carry out military action against Iran due to their vulnerability to counterstrikes.
Jazayeri also reportedly said that Iran “brushes aside” the United States’ carrot and stick approach toward Iran.
Also, Iran’s ambassador to Russia, Seyyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi, said on Wednesday that his country is capable of striking U.S. forces anywhere in the world if it is attacked.
