“Iran will give a crushing response to any threat by the occupying regime,” Iran’s Ambassador and permanent representative to the UN Majid Takht Ravanchi wrote in a letter to the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in reaction to the recent comments of an Israeli official, adding that any measure by the Zionist regime will speed up its eventual destruction.
“Recently, the Israeli regime has not only intensified its provocative and hawkish remarks against the Islamic Republic of Iran but is also actively planning to carry out its hostile threats against Iran,” Takht Ravanchi wrote.

Referring to a top Israeli military official’s mendacious claims on Iran’s peaceful nuclear program, he continued, “In addition to their current plans against Iran, the Israeli military forces are also preparing operational plans to develop them for the next year, as such plans must be ‘on the table’.”
“Such threats are a blatant violation of Article 2 of the UN Charter”, Takht Ravanchi added.
He stressed that given the very dark and shameful record of the regime in attacking regional countries, the world countries should give an appropriate response to the usurper regime.
“We reserve our natural right to defense, and will give a decisive response to any threat or incorrect move by the Israeli regime,” the envoy went on to say.
“It is perfectly clear that the Israeli regime must shoulder full responsibility for its unbridled and incorrect moves,” he warned, calling on the Security Council to confront Israel’s destabilizing policies and hawkish actions.
In late January, Israeli Army Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi warned the administration of US President Joe Biden against rejoining the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, adding that he had ordered his forces to step up preparations for possible offensive against Iran.
In relevant remarks late January, Military advisor to the Iranian Supreme Leader and former Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan played down the Israeli officials’ recent threats against Iran, saying that they do not dare to fire even a single bullet at the country.
The Israelis “do not even dare to fire a bullet at dear Iran”, General Dehqan wrote on his twitter page on Wednesday January 27.
He warned the regime, however, that Iran’s “doctrine is defensive but based on severe punishment for the aggressors. Do not rush for annihilation.”
