"Last night, we slapped them on the face", he said, with the crowd responding with chants of "death to America".

Senior political and military officials had promised to take harsh revenge on the USA for the death of General Soleimani.

The U.S. military said an assessment was underway to determine damage and any casualties at al-Asad airbase in Iraq, which hosted President Donald Trump in December of 2018, as well as at another facility in Erbil. The attack comes after the killing of a top Iranian military commander by the US.

Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy head of Iraq's Hashed al-Shaabi military network, was killed in the USA drone strike alongside Soleiman, seen as the "godfather" of Tehran's proxy network across the region.

Tens of thousands of people had poured onto the streets of Kerman to pay tribute to Soleimani, who was killed in a USA drone strike in Iraq on Friday.

Iranian state television said Iran had fired 15 missiles at us targets in Iraq early on Wednesday. Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq.

Ali Shamkhani told the Tasnim news agency: "The 27 United States bases that are closest to Iran's border are already on high alert; they know that the response is likely to include medium-range & long-range missiles".

Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps' elite Quds Force, was killed in a us drone strike outside Baghdad airport early Friday.

The US Federal Aviation Administration said it would ban US airlines from operating in the airspace over Iraq, Iran, the Gulf and the Gulf of Oman.
