"Iran took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense under Article 51 of UN Charter targeting base from which cowardly armed attack against our citizens & senior officials were launched," Zarif tweeted. "We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression."
The Iranians basically broke some furniture in retaliation for the killing of their general and then said, "Please, don't hit us back." This totally jives with what Vox Day has said. Though, I'm surprised that Iran would be so explicit about it.
