Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has targeted US airbase of Ain al-Assad in Anbar province in western Iraq on Wednesday in response to the US assassination of the great commander of the IRGC's Quds Forces, Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

The IRGC said in the statement that the attacks came in response to the criminal and terrorist operation of the assignation of the commander of the IRGC Quds Forces Lieutenant General Qasem Soleimani by the US occupying forces in Iraq.

It advised the US nation to recall their troops from the Middle East region to avoid any further damage and urged them not to risk the lives of the US military because of the policies of hate-mongering US regime.
