Leading Iranian commanders cautioned Israel on Sunday that if it retaliates against drone and missile strikes that occurred overnight, it will be met with a more potent onslaught. They also stated that Washington has been instructed not to support any military action from its partner.

Iran’s chief of staff for the armed forces, Major General Mohammad Bagheri, said state television that “our response will be much larger than tonight’s military action if Israel retaliates against Iran.” Tehran also warned Washington that any support for Israeli reprisal will lead to the targeting of US sites.

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi declared, “If the Zionist regime (Israel) or its supporters demonstrate reckless behavior, they will receive a decisive and much stronger response.”
