Iran could strike U.S. bases in the Middle East in response to any Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities, the leader of Lebanon’s Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah said on Monday.
“A decision has been taken to respond and the response will be very great,” Hassan Nasrallah said in an interview with the Beirut-based Al Mayadeen television.
“The response will not be just inside the Israeli entity – American bases in the whole region could be Iranian targets,” he said. “If Israel targets Iran, America bears responsibility.”
