Iran warns of targeting US bases if attacked
Iran will target the US bases in the region as soon as it comes under attack by its arch foe, Washington, a senior Iranian lawmaker warned on Saturday, Fars news agency reported.
"If the US makes such a mistake, Tehran will then assume itself to be entitled to the right to destroy all US military bases in the region," Head of the parliament's Defense Committee Gholamreza Karami told FNA.
He stressed that all the US forces and military bases in the entire Middle-East and other countries are within the range of Iran's ground-to-ground missiles, and said in case of a US attack against Iran, the American forces will become the victim of the Washington's wrong policy.
Karami expressed the hope that the US would change its policies towards the regional countries, respect the rights of the other nations and avoid making the American troops a victim of its warmongering policies.
