New Quds Force head: Iran will attack US 'soon'

Iran will attack United States forces in the Middle East "soon," newly appointed Quds Force Commander Ismail Qaani said on Friday, according to Al-Jazeera.

Qaani, who was appointed as head of Quds Force earlier in the day after Commander Qassem Soleimani was killed by the US in Iraq. stated: "We say be patient, soon you will witness the bodies of Americans in all of the Middle East."

The military official's statement comes after Iran's National Security Council said that Tehran will respond to the US attack "at the right time and place" as Iran vowed vengeance for Soleimani's death. Meanwhile, the US told Saudi Arabia that it wants to see deescalation of tensions in the Middle East, but reports suggested Washington is planning to send an additional 3,500 troops to the region.
