Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a January 8, 2019 speech that aired on Ofogh TV (Iran) that the ballistic missile attacks on U.S. bases had been a "slap" to the Americans, that military operations against America are not enough, and that America's corrupting presence in the region must come to an end. The audience, in which many people were holding up pictures of Qasem Soleimani, energetically chanted: "Death to America! Death to America! Death to Israel! Death to Israel!... Allah Akbar! Khamenei is the Leader! Death to those who oppose the Rule of the Jurisprudent! Death to the hypocrites and infidels!"

 

Audience: "Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to Israel! Death to Israel! Death to Israel! Death to Israel! Death to Israel! Death to Israel! Death to Israel!"

 

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: "There is one important issue: What is our role? After all, something important has happened. The issue of revenge is another thing. Meanwhile, they received a slap last night. This is another thing."

 

Audience: "Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Khamenei is the Leader! Death to those who oppose the Rule of the Jurisprudent! Death to America! Death to England! Death to the hypocrites and the infidels! Death to Israel!"

 

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: "What's important is that as a response, such military operations are not enough. What's important is that America's corrupting presence in the region must come to an end."

 

Audience: "Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Khamenei is the Leader! Death to those who oppose the Rule of the Jurisprudent! Death to America! Death to England! Death to the hypocrites and the infidels! Death to Israel!"
