Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warns the US that its forces will be removed from the Middle East following the killing of Qasem Soleimani. "You cut off Soleimani's hand from his body, your feet will be cut off from the region," Iranian media quote him as telling a cabinet meeting. Two Iraqi bases housing US and coalition troops were targeted, one at Al Asad and one in Irbil, at about 02:00 local time on Wednesday (22.30 GMT on Tuesday). It came just hours after the burial of Soleimani, who controlled Iran's proxy forces across the Middle East.
