Iranian general says US should expect ‘strong slap in the face’

The head of ground forces for Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, Gen. Mohammad Pakpour, claimed Wednesday that the US would receive a "strong slap in the face" if it has a mistaken assessment of Iran's military power and ability to defend itself. He made the comment in an interview with the Revolutionary Guard's website after a three-day military exercise including tanks, drones, helicopters and missiles. He asserted that the exercise that ended Tuesday night was intended to tell the world "not to do anything stupid". Meanwhile, a commentator for Iran's Tasnim news agency was quoted as saying that Hizballah could use the Iranian Fateh 110 missiles in its possession to strike Israel's nuclear reactor in Dimona.
