The head of Iran’s elite Quds Force said Iran may take revenge for the U.S. killing of his predecessor Qassem Soleimani “in your house,” the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.

“You no longer have peace in your own houses and it’s not unlikely that we take revenge in your house,” Esmail Ghaani said at a speech on Wednesday in the city of Kerman, as part of events for the anniversary of Soleimani’s killing last year.
