A member of Iran's Supreme National Security Council has said on Tuesday that the enemy cannot destroy the enormous social capital by media propaganda.

Iran Press/ Iran News: Addressing a large gathering of academics in a ceremony for commemorating Lt. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, and their martyred companion and also the Ukrainian plane crash victims held at Tehran University, Saeed Jalili referred to the US message to Iran after the assassination of Gen. Soleimani and said: "A number of governments conveyed the message in a sympathetic mode and at the same time, threatening tone that the threat from the Americans after assassination of LT. Gen. Soleimani is not bluff."

Jalili said that under such circumstances the Americans received a firm response, not a proxy, but a direct response.

He stated: "The Islamic Republic of Iran officially accepted the missile attack on the US terrorist forces in Ain Al-Asad Base in Iraq and this act showed that Tehran had the power to do so, and have the power to take the responsibility and publicly announce the attack."

Asked why the Americans couldn't do anything after Iran's firm response, Jalili who is a member of the Expediency Council said: "It was a great operation."

Referring to the efforts of the enemies after the crash of the Ukrainian plane to destroy the magnificent funeral of the martyrs of the resistance, he stated: "The enemy cannot by media propaganda destroy the enormous social capital created in the society after the martyrdom of Lt. Gen. Soleimani." 207/205/201
