Iran Says It Will Not Surrender Even If It Is Bombed

According to Reuters, President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran will not surrender to U.S. pressure and will not abandon its goals even if it is bombed.

Earlier in the day, Iran’s top military chief said the standoff between Tehran and Washington was a “clash of wills." Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan on Thursday confirmed that the Pentagon was considering sending yet further U.S. troops to the Middle East as one of the ways to bolster protection for American forces there.
