U.S. Warned About Bases In Event Of War

A senior commander in Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard Corps has warned that Iran will target U.S. bases in the region should a war with Israel break out.

Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh says no Israeli attack could happen without U.S. involvement, making all U.S. military bases legitimate targets.

He said regional states will get involved in any war because Iran will attack U.S. bases in Bahrain, Qatar and Afghanistan. Hajizadeh made the comment Sunday during an interview with Iran’s official al-Alam TV.

The United States and its allies believe Iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons, and Israel has suggested it might strike Iran’s nuclear facilities unilaterally. Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
