#IRGC's Aerospace commander: #Iran’s Missile strikes at one of the most important US bases was the start of a major operation that will continue throughout the region...We were not after killing. We sought to hit the enemy's military machine.
#IRGC's Aerospace commander: We were expecting a response [from the #US to our strikes at #AinAlAsad], and we had prepared ourselves for a battle, and naturally our next strikes (in the case of the #American response) would be heavier and certainly in a vaster scope.
#Iran's #IRGC commander: We fired 13 missiles at #AinAlAsad, but we were ready to fire some hundred missiles in first 1 or 2 hrs. We assumed that a limited battle & not an extensive one would last for 3 to 7 days & we were prepared to fire thousands of missiles in that case.
#Iran's IRGC commander:We didn't seek to kill anyone in strike at #AinAlAsad, although dozens were killed & injured.We could design the operation in a way that it would've killed 500 in 1st step, & in the case of their response, in 2nd & 3rd steps, 4K to 5K would have been killed
#Iran's #IRGC Aerospace commander: All missiles hit the target [at #AinAlAsad], and interestingly they didn't fire even single bullet at our missiles, despite their extensive facilities & many of their fighters flying. They couldn't confront.
#Iran's #IRGC commander: Americans were on high alert for several days & their 12 reconnaissance aircrafts were monitoring worryingly. We thought that they would take offensive position after our strike, but it seemed they were waiting for the slap & after our attack they landed.
#Iran's #IRGC commander: Al-Taji base, near to Baghdad, was our first choice to be striked, but we didn't strike there for we didn't want to bother Iraqi citizens in Baghdad & Kadhimiya by the sound of missiles explosion. As a result we targeted #AinAlAsad.
#Iran's #IRGC commander: They transfered the injured forces from #AinAlAsad to Jordan, Zionist Regime & also Baghdad... If US president was right about the casualties, why didn't they allow any journalists or Iraqis in the Ain al-Asad base?
#Iran’s #IRGC commander says that the threat of #DonaldTrump to target 52 sites was a “bluff”, saying “they can target [the sites], but Americans proceed via media propaganda, but they cannot do so in confrontation with Iran”.
#Iran's #IRGC commander Hajizadeh: 15 minutes after the strike at #AinAlAsad, a major electronic warfare operation was carried out, and #American drones were out of control for moments, and this was a major psychological blow to them.
#IRGC Aerospace commander: The main building of the command headquarters at the #AinAlAsad base was destroyed in #Iran's missile strike at the base.
