Iran’s IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari warned that Tel Aviv should expect heavier responses from the Lebanese resistance movement in retaliation for the Israeli regime’s recent air attack on the Golan Heights that killed a number of Hezbollah members and Iranian military advisor.
“Hezbollah’s recent attack on Israel was a response with the lowest degree of severity and we hope that they take the lesson not to repeat such mistakes (in future),” Major General Jafari told reporters on Friday.
He reiterated that Israel is afraid of the capabilities of the resistance movement and “that is the reason why it carries out terrorist attacks on the lives of Hezbollah commanders”.
Almost two weeks ago, an Israeli helicopter struck Quneitra in Syria’s Golan Heights, killing Iranian military advisor Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi as well as the son of slain Hezbollah top commander Imad Mughniyeh and 4 other Hezbollah members.
In relevant remarks on Tuesday, IRGC Lieutenant Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami warned that the recent Israeli air raid against Syria which killed a number of Hezbollah members and an Iranian military adviser will certainly be retaliated with a crushing response at an unexpected time and place.
“We will take the revenge from the Israelis for these martyrs’ blood at a time and place that they don’t expect,” Salami said in Tehran on Tuesday evening.
Asked by reporters if Iranians should wait for Tehran’s response to the Israeli attack, he said, “Yes, wait for the Islamic Republic of Iran’s response.”
Salami underlined that the resistance forces are gaining more and greater success in their combat against Israel.
On Monday, Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi underscored that the last Sunday Israeli attack that killed a number of Hezbollah members and an Iranian military adviser in Syria justified striking painful blows at the Zionist regime.
Martyrdom of Allahdadi meant an order to set the holy Quds free and a permission for giving a proper response to the Zionist regime,” Naqdi said in Tehran on Monday.
“His martyrdom again proved that the Takfiris are the military wing of the Zionist regime and displayed the US asymmetric warfare against the Islamic Ummah,” he added.
Naqdi warned the Zionists that they will soon be forced to leave the occupied Palestinian territories, and said, “They will not experience tranquility, these bloods will not remain without a response and they should remain fully alerted until complete annihilation of the Zionist regime.”
