Arab Analyst: Netanyahu Should Take IRGC General’s Advice Seriously

7 October 2018 17:32

 

Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief of Ray al-Youm newspaper, called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to give serious thoughts to a warning issued by a senior IRGC commander who advised him fear Hezbollah’s missiles.

Addressing a group of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps commanders and officers in the Central city of Isfahan on Friday IRGC Lieutenant Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami blasted the Israeli prime minister for fabricating the realities on the ground and promoting Iranophobia, and said that Netanyahu would take his dreams to the grave.

“Netanyahu should know that he has no way out but fleeing the region and so he needs to learn how to swim in the Mediterranean Sea,” General Salami said, adding that Hezbollah is powerful enough to destroy Israel.

Atwan referred to the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance group’s missiles, and wrote on Sunday that the retired Israeli generals have several times warned that Israel’s iron dome can never defend Haifa, Yafa, Tel Aviv, Naharia, Aka, Ilat and Dimona against thousands of incoming Hezbollah missiles.

“We advise Netanyahu to take General Salami’s advice seriously because he is not kidding and the era for Israel’s bullying has ended,” Atwan said, adding that the power balance created by Hezbollah’s missiles and Iran’s strategic missile power as well as the Syrian army’s control over 90% of the country’s territories leave Israel no other option.

General Salami’s remarks came after Netanyahu once again brought out fresh theatrics against Iran, repeating his threadbare allegation that the country is working to develop nuclear weapons at “secret” sites.

As already expected, Netanyahu used a map and photographs of a building that he claimed was a “secret atomic weapons warehouse” in the Iranian capital, Tehran, to justify his false accusations during his speech at the 73rd annual session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

In response, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araqchi ridiculed Netanyahu for his latest anti-Iran theatrics at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly.

“I believe that some people have pulled a prank on Netanyahu and this time they have referred him to Turquzabad,” the Iranian deputy foreign minister.

Araqchi reiterated that he believed that certain people had been pulling Netanyahu’s leg on this one.
