SOT, Major General Hossein Salami, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards chief (Farsi): “We also warn our friends in neighbouring lands to be careful, so their lands do not turn into a context for creating conspiracies. We warn our enemies that we will find you, wherever you are and if we find you, we will not let you escape. Be careful, as you have experienced. The Iranian nation’s power is the power that has been tested across the world. All should look at this power with accurate conclusions.” *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE*

SCRIPT
Chief of Iran Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Major General Hossein Salami, said during a ceremony in Sanandaj, Kurdistan Province on Thursday, that the downing of a US drone earlier in the day sent a "clear, quick, explicit and accurate" message to Washington that they will “give strong and firm responses to any invasion."
He added that Iran is also warning other countries to avoid getting involved in the situation.
“We have no intention of fighting with any countries, but we are completely ready for war," Salami said. "What happened today was an obvious sign of this accurate message."
A US military surveillance drone was shot down by Iranian forces while flying over the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday.
According to the IRGC, the drone violated Iranian airspace, but the US military says it happened over international waters.
