Iran warned Israel of a larger attack on its territory should it retaliate against Tehran’s overnight drone and missile attack on Sunday, adding that Washington has been warned not to back Israeli military action.

“Our response will be much larger than tonight’s military action if Israel retaliates against Iran,” armed forces chief of staff Major General Mohammad Bagheri told state TV, adding that Tehran warned Washington that any backing of Israeli retaliation would result in US bases being targeted.

An IRGC commander said, according to Al Jazeera, that the Iranian “operation was limited and successful.”

The commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Hossein Salami, also warned Tehran would retaliate against any Israeli attack on its interests, officials or citizens.

Iran says attack was successful

“Our operations are over, and we have no intention to continue them,” Bagheri said before claiming that Iran’s attack had successfully targeted two Israeli military bases.

Addressing Iranian state TV, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Major General Hossein Salami, said Tehran had entered a new equation in which any Israeli attack on its interests, assets, officials, or citizens would be reciprocated from its own territory.
