Iranian Official Warns US Troops To Leave The Middle East Voluntarily Or Be Carried Out Horizontally

Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency is reporting officials have drawn up 13 sets of plans for revenge for the U.S. airstrike that killed top general Qassem Soleimani. The report quotes the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council as saying that even the weakest among them would be a “historic nightmare” for the U.S. Ali Shamkhani is quoted as saying “If the U.S. troops do not leave our region voluntarily and upright, we will do something to carry their bodies horizontally out.” Meantime, the leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard told a crowd of thousands gathered for Soleimani’s funeral that Iran will “set ablaze” places supported by the United States.
