The commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on Thursday threatened to target both Israel and the United States if they make an “error.”
Iranian Major General Hossein Salami, who made the comment in a speech broadcast live on state TV, said Iran will view both countries as responsible in case of military action against it.
“If you make the slightest error, we will hit both of you,” he said, according to Reuters.
He also warned Israel not to rely on the United States, Iran’s Press TV reported.
“You should [instead] definitely look to the sea because that is going to be your eventual residing place,” he was quoted as saying.
Salami was speaking at a ceremony to mark 40 days since the death of IRGC Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani, who was killed alongside Iraqi militia leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis on January 3 by a US airstrike in Baghdad.
