Iran Guards Claims Missiles Did Not Aim to Kill U.S. Troops

'We don't retreat in face of America': Iran president

Tehran (AFP) – Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said Sunday it did not aim to kill US troops when it fired a wave of missiles last week at Iraqi bases hosting American forces.

“Our aim was not really to kill enemy soldiers. That was not important,” the Guards’ commander, Hossein Salami, told parliament, referring to last Wednesday’s missile operation launched to avenge the killing of a top Iranian general.
