Iran to “Suffer Greatly” If It Does Anything against US: Trump


Basnews English 14/05/2019 – 17:13 – ERBIL — US President Donald Trump once again warned Iran against doing anything that will hurt the US. “We’ll see what happens with Iran. If they do anything, it will be a very bad mistake,” Reuters quoted the president while speaking at the White House.“If they do anything they will suffer greatly,” Trump added.

Tensions between the US and Iran are fast escalating with both the sides threatening to attack the other if their interests are targeted.

Trump’s remarks came after four commercial ships were sabotaged in the Gulf near the UAE. Iran rejected any involvement in the attack, but Washington said it is investigating the case.

The US has already deployed aircraft carrier strike groups, patriot missile defense system, and B52 bombers to the Middle East, preparing to react promptly if Iran targets its forces or interests in the region.
