According to reuters, iranian state television said a senior iranian military commander said iran's missile attack on u.s. military bases in iraq was not aimed at killing u.s. soldiers, but at trying to damage washington's \"military machine \". He said it was the beginning of a series of attacks in the Middle East.
Amiri Hajizadeh, commander of the Air Force of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, said the \"appropriate retaliation\" against the killing of the famous Iranian general, Qasim Suleimani, was to drive U.S. troops away from the Middle East.
He added that Iran had prepared hundreds of missiles and that Tehran had used "cyber-attacks to disable [U.S.] aircraft and drone navigation systems when it launched the missile on the 8th. “
