TEHRAN – Ayatollah Kazem Seddiqi, the interim Friday prayer preacher of Tehran, has lauded the recent missile attacks by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on terrorists in the Iraqi Kurdistan and eastern Syria as a sign of Iran’s military “power”.

“After the Ahvaz incident in which children, women and men were targeted with the oppressors’ bullets, our glorious missiles, from hundreds of kilometers away, sent Daesh heads, who were within spitting distance of the Americans, to hell” Seddiqi told worshippers in Tehran on Friday, ISNA reported.

“We congratulate the commanders of Sepah (IRGC), the Leader and the nation on this move,” he added.
