Iran says missile attacks on US targets were "legitimate self-defense" - TV
Lebanon News

Iran's missile attacks on US targets in Iraq on Wednesday were "legitimate self-defense", Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told state TV, adding that Washington's assessment to retaliate should not be based on "illusions".

 

"Our action was a legitimate self-defense and the United States should avoid assessing it based on illusions," Zarif said.

 

Iran launched missile attacks on US-led forces in Iraq in the early hours of Wednesday in retaliation for the US drone strike that killed Iran's commander of Quds Force Qassem Soleimani.
