The missiles fired at United States base in Iraq was not meant to kill anyone, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards says.
Commander of the guard, Hossein Salami while addressing Iranian parliament on Sunday explained that the missile attacks was to send a message of superiority to the US.
“We did not intend to kill, our aim was not really to kill enemy soldiers. That was not important.
“The physical destruction caused by the missiles was just because we wanted to say that we are so much more superior to the enemy and that we can hit any point we choose.”
“We intended to hit the enemy’s military machinery.”
He however acknowledged that the attack left “tens of people killed or wounded,”.
