First comments from Rouhani and Khamenei
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani and Iran spiritual leader Ali Khamenei have made the first comments after the missiles attack on US military bases in Iraq.
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani is expected to address the nation today. In his first comment on the missile attack against American US bases in Iraq, Rouhani said America maybe have "cut off the arm" of General Qassem Soleimani but America's "leg" in the region would be cut off in response.
Ali Khamenei was speaking in Qoms. After paying tribute to General Qassam Soleimani, who was killed by an American drone last Friday, Iran spiritual leader said: "We just gave them a slap in the face last night. Retaliation, these military actions, do not compensate for the issue. What is important is the ending of American presence."
