Iran’s Revolutionary Guards says U.S. forces should leave the region: IRNA

LONDON (Reuters) – A senior commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said on Monday that Tehran will not withdraw its forces from the region, dismissing U.S. calls that Iranian regional influence should be curbed.

“The enemy cannot ask us to leave the region. They must leave the region,” Brigadier General Hossein Salami, deputy head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

“We will help any Muslim anywhere in the world,” he added
