Iran can hit back very hard if it's attacked by US: Analyst

American political analyst Stephen Lendman says that if the United States attacks Iran, the Islamic Republic “can hit back very hard.”

On Thursday, the chief commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) downplayed a recent US’ anti-Iran rhetoric, warning that the Islamic Republic will target American vessels if they were to threaten the safety of the country’s vessels or warships.

Major General Hossein Salami made the comments in response to a threat by US President Donald Trump that American forces in the Persian Gulf have been directed to shoot Iranian boats "out of the water."
