US does not dare attack Iran: Revolutionary Guards commander

The United States and its supporters do not dare attack Iran because of its “spirit of resistance”, a senior Revolutionary Guards commander was quoted as saying. Tensions have spiked between Iran and the United States after Washington sent more military forces to the Middle East, including an aircraft carrier, B-52 bombers and Patriot missiles, in a show of force against what US officials say are Iranian threats to its troops and interests in the region.

“If the criminal America and its Western and regional allies don`t dare carry out a face-to-face military attack against our country it is because of the spirit of resistance and sacrifice of the people and youth,” Major General Gholamali Rashid is reported to have said.

In a Twitter message addressed to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo , an adviser to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the US military deployment to the region was a deliberate provocation. “You @SecPompeo do not bring warships to our region and call it deterrence. That`s called provocation. It compels Iran to illustrate its own deterrence, which you call provocation. You see the cycle?,” the adviser, Hesameddin Ashena, tweeted in English. 

Earlier, US President Donald Trump tweeted, “If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!”
