SOT, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Commander (Farsi): "We took over the control of all drones that were flying over the zone of Ain Assad from Americans for moments and we also eliminated their communication link as well as vision. In fact, it frightened Americans when the missile strikes were done, the most important thing that Americans needed at that time was to figure out what had happened, what the casualties were and which places were hit and this should have been transferred in the blink of an eye by the cameras of eight of America's MQ-9 drones that were flying over the zone, their footage was also showing in the US directly and online simultaneously. We took over control of them and this totally disrupted their system. Based on what I myself was observing in the command centre and was monitoring the circumstance there, it seems that through this electronic operation which disabled all their drones we affected them mentally much more than the missile strikes."

SOT, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Commander (Farsi): "We fired 13 missiles at the (US) bases in Iraq, although we had prepared several hundred missiles for launching, in the first one to two hours. I think if it continued, this conflict might have taken from two days to one week but on a minor scale and not extended. In fact, if both parties did not have this self-restraint, it might have taken up to three days to one week, we had prepared ourselves for several hundred missiles."
W/S press conference in progress
SOT, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Commander (Farsi): "It is in their best interest that they themselves voluntarily leave not only Iraq but also Afghanistan and also Arab countries. Because, as far as I know, from the resistance front to the newly formed fronts and the new ones that are being formed in the region will cause them to leave the region with damage and embarrassment."

SOT, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Commander (Farsi): "I ask different regional people and nations to make a decision in the same way that the parliament of Iraq and Iraqi people decided to expel the US from the region. Emiratis, Qataris, Bahrainis, Omanis, Jordanians, and Afghans have to make a decision, if not, the groups and the fronts of resistance will make this decision and impose it on you."

Iran urged the US to "voluntarily" leave the Middle East unless they want to "leave the region with damage and embarrassment" during a press conference on Thursday in Tehran after Wednesday's airstrikes at US bases.
"I ask different regional people and nations to make a decision in the same way that the parliament of Iraq and Iraqi people decided to expel the US from the region. Emiratis, Qataris, Bahrainis, Omanis, Jordanians, and Afghans have to make a decision, if not, the groups and the fronts of resistance will make this decision and impose it on you," said Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh.
Discussing the recent Iranian missile attacks targeting US bases in Iraq, Hajizadeh said Iran had prepared "hundreds of missiles."
"I think if it continued, this conflict might have taken from two days to one week," he said.
Tensions in the region escalated after a US strike near Baghdad airport that killed Iran Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani on Friday before Iran carried out retaliatory rocket attacks against US forces stationed in Iraq.
