Senior Iranian military official warns U.S. forces of 'firm' response: Fars news

LONDON (Reuters) - Iran’s armed forces chief of staff on Tuesday warned U.S. forces in the region of a “firm” response, a day after Washington designated Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization.

“The Islamic Republic and its powerful and sacred state will certainly not remain silent about this unwise decision. If the U.S. forces in the Western Asia ... do anything wrong, we will firmly respond,” Major General Mohammad Baqeri was quoted as saying by Fars news agency.
