DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran’s response to U.S. retaliation to Tehran’s missile attacks on American targets in Iraq will be proportional, Iranian Defence Minister Amir Hatami told state television.
“We used short range missiles ... I hope this will be a memorable lesson for America,” Hatami said in reference to Wednesday’s Iranian strikes on U.S. targets that followed last week’s killing of an Iranian commander in a U.S. drone strike.
“Iran’s response (to any U.S. retaliation) will be proportional to what America will do,” he said, adding that U.S. President Donald Trump “has turned the (U.S.) Administration into a terrorist government.”
