Khamenei: Iran gave U.S. 'slap on face', calls missile strikes 'day of God'Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a Friday sermon that Iran’s missile strikes on U.S. targets in Iraq this month delivered a “slap on the face” to the United States, showing the Islamic Republic had divine support. During a spike in tension, Iran launched missiles at U.S. targets on Jan. 8 in response to a U.S. drone strike on Jan. 3 that killed Qassem Soleimeni, a powerful Iranian general who was close to Khamenei.
