Republican U.S. Senator Rob Portman of Ohio says he is opposed to American attacks on Iranian cultural sites as a response to that country's retaliation for the drone strike that killed a top general. 

Portman made the comments during a conference call with reporters:

President Trump made the threat after pro-Iran groups vowed revenge. Iran is home to 24 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which  are protected by international agreements.
