Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi reiterated that Israel lacks the ability to attack Iran, and warned that the Iranian Armed Forces will give a crushing response to any Israeli aggression.
“The Zionist regime can only dream of striking Iran, otherwise, the first mistake of this fake regime will be its last,” Vahisi said in Iran’s Central province of Isfahan on Wednesday.
Last Wednesday, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said that the Iranian Armed Forces have the necessary capability to bring into action the Supreme Leader’s warnings to enemies.
“The deterrent warnings of the Supreme Leader of the (Islamic) Revolution to enemies are serious and based on the capacities and reality of the Islamic Iran’s defensive power,” Jafari said, addressing Iranian border guards units in the country’s Northwestern regions.
In similar remarks this month, another senior Iranian military commander dismissed enemies’ warmongering rhetoric against Iran as unworthy, saying that the Iranian Armed Forces are capable of razing Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground as stated by the Supreme Leader last month.
Speaking to reporters, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Logistics and Industrial Research General Mohammad Hejazi pointed to the remarks made by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei about Tehran’s crushing response to the US and Israel’s possible hostile moves, and noted that the Leader is “well aware” of the Iranian Armed Forces’ capability.
“We enjoy the needed level of preparedness to put this statement (razing Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground) into action in the shortest time possible if the enemy makes a foolish move,” Hejazi underlined.
Addressing a large and fervent congregation of the Iranian people in the country’s Northeastern holy city of Mashhad on March 21, Ayatollah Khamenei deplored Israel’s war rhetoric against Iran, and warned that any hostile move by the Zionist regime against the Islamic Republic would be reciprocated with a destructive response.
Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the recent warmongering statements by Israeli officials and warned Tel Aviv against any wrongdoing against the Islamic Republic of Iran.
“Israel’s leaders sometimes threaten Iran, but they know that if they do a damn thing, the Islamic Republic will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground,” Ayatollah Khamenei stressed.
