The senior commander of Iran’s Quds Force has reportedly warned that any action against his country will be “regretted,” stressing that Tehran has “buried many…like Trump” and knows how to “fight against America,” according to Tasnim news agency, as cited by Reuters.

“We are not a war-mongering country. But any military action against Iran will be regretted…Trump’s threats against Iran will damage America…we have buried many…like Trump and know how to fight against America,” Esmail Ghaani, deputy head of the Quds Force, an overseas arm of the powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), said, Reuters reported, citing Tasnim news agency.

The IRGC is Iran’s most powerful security entity and holds control over large portions of the country’s economy and has significant influence within its political system.

It comes just two days after Iran’s foreign minister warned of a tough response if US President Donald Trump goes ahead with threats to scrap a landmark nuclear deal signed under the Obama administration.

Speaking during a closed session of parliament on Wednesday, Mohammad Javad Zarif told lawmakers that Iran “will never renegotiate” the deal brokered between Tehran and six world powers, Fars news agency reported.

Meanwhile, world leaders and other officials have urged Trump to stick with the deal, with German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel stating on Thursday that “a termination of the Iran agreement would turn the Middle East into a region of hot crises.”

British Prime Minister Theresa May has also urged Washington to re-certify the deal, calling it “vitally important for regional security.”
