Iran has braced itself to face any possible scenario, IRGC chief says

The chief commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has warned the United States against any provocative moves in the Persian Gulf, emphasizing that the Islam Republic stands fully prepared for any possible scenario.

Speaking at a ceremony marking the first anniversary of the assassination of top Iranian anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and his companions in a US drone strike near Baghdad airport, Major General Hossein Salami said Pentagonís recent decision to ramp up its military presence and activities in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman is because of the mistake it made last year.

Salami noted that the assassination of Lt. Gen. Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force of Iranís Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and his Iraqi trenchmate Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy head of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), and their associates bred passionate hatred among Muslims worldwide.

"This intense hatred always haunts Americans like a nightmare. They have taken a series of actions to escape from this horrible nightmare. We have braced ourselves for any scenario," he pointed out.

"Iran has no worries. We are ready to defend our independence, vital interests and achievements of our great [1979 Islamic] revolution as we have demonstrated over the past 41 years.

"Today, we have no problems, worries nor concerns to face any military power," Major General Salami noted.

On Wednesday, two nuclear-capable American B-52 bombers flew over the Persian Gulf after nonstop flights to the region from their US-based hangars. It was the third time in six weeks that American bombers were conducting long-range flights off the Iranian coast.

The latest deployments came after the US Navy announced the arrival of a nuclear-powered submarine in the Persian Gulf last week. The USS Georgia passed the Strait of Hormuz accompanied by two American warships, making it the first missile-loaded submarine of its kind to enter the Persian Gulf in eight years.

The region has witnessed escalating tensions since Trump accused Iran of playing a role in attacks on the US embassy in Iraq late last month, which Tehran has dismissed as false flag operations.

Anti-terror leader: Iraq should have responded firmly

The leader of Asaíib Ahl al-Haq anti-terror group, whose fellow fighters are part of the PMU better known as Hashd al-Shaíabi, says Baghdad should have given an appropriate response to the assassinations.

"I regret the procrastination in responding to the target killings of Gen. Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis. Iraqís response should have been stronger than Iranís," Qais al-Khazali told Iraqís Arabic-language al-Ahad television network on Thursday night.

"As an Iraqi national, I am heartbroken not to have responded to the assassination of Martyr Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. The United States should not harbor the delusion that the resistanceís response to any aggression will not be befitting. The presence of any foreign military base on Iraqi soil is unlawful and against the Constitution, especially after the approval of the Iraqi parliamentís resolution."

The leader of Asaíib Ahl al-Haq group then called on the Iraqi Judiciary to prosecute those responsible for the assassinations before Trump ends his tenure on January 21.

General Soleimani and Muhandis were assassinated along with their companions in a US terror drone strike authorized by Trump near Baghdad International Airport on January 3.

Iraqi lawmakers approved a bill two days later, demanding the expulsion of all foreign military forces led by the United States from the Arab country.

Both commanders were admired by Muslim nations for eliminating the US-sponsored Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in the region, particularly in Iraq and Syria.

The US assassination drew a wave of condemnation from officials and movements throughout the world, and triggered huge public protests across the region.

Early on January 8, the IRGC targeted the US-run Ain al-Assad air base in Iraqís western province of Anbar after launching a wave of attacks to retaliate the assassination of Lt. Gen. Soleimani.

According to the Pentagon, more than 100 American forces suffered "traumatic brain injuries" during the counterstrike on the base. The IRGC, however, says Washington uses the term to mask the number of the Americans who perished during the retaliation.

Iran has described the missile attack on Ain al-Assad air base as a "first slap."

Head of the Iranian Judiciaryís High Council for Human Rights Ali Baqeri-Kani announced on December 28 that the country has identified and is prosecuting 48 individuals for masterminding and conducting Lt. Gen. Soleimaniís assassination.
