Ayatollah Khamenei Calls For Direct Attack on American Interests

TEHRAN: Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called for a direct attack on US interests in revenge for the death of Qassem Soleimani while the head of Iran’s revolutionary guard vowed to ‘set ablaze’ American allies.

Khamenei has ordered Iranian forces to carry out a direct retaliation rather than relying on Tehran’s proxies in the region.

The supreme leader, who wept in public over Soleimani’s coffin in Tehran yesterday, has vowed ‘severe revenge’ for the drone strike which killed the general.

Meanwhile the revolutionary guard chief Hossein Salami told mourners at Soleimani’s funeral today that Iran would hit places supported by Washington.
