Commander of the Aerospace Division of Iran’s Islamic Revolution’s Guards Corps Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh told Fars News Agency on Monday that seeing israel commit the folly of attacking Iran is “one of our greatest wishes.”
“A concealed energy has existed for some time now and we would like to use it to send the enemies of Islam and Muslims to the dustbin of history,” he added.
Hajizadeh stressed that Iran would never cease developing its missile capabilities.
Earlier on Sunday, Deputy Head of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Gholam-Ali Rashid said Iran would strike all israeli military and nuclear sites in case of a military confrontation with the Tel Aviv regime.
He said israeli war rhetoric against Iran is a form of psychological warfare, stressing that israel is in no position to take the risk of a military adventure.
The United States and israel have repeatedly threatened Tehran with the “option” of a military strike, based on the allegation that Iran’s nuclear work may consist of a covert military agenda.
Iran has refuted the allegations, saying that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA, it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
While zionist israel refuses to allow inspections of its nuclear facilities or to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty based on its policy of nuclear ambiguity, Iran has been subjected to snap International Atomic Energy Agency inspections due to its policy of nuclear transparency.
zionist israel recently test fired a new long-range missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads. The test was carried out at the Palmahim air base in central israel.
This three-stage Jericho-3 missile, which is capable of delivering a 750-kilo warhead to a distance, is estimated to have a range of up to 10,000 kilometers. Paradoxically, zionist israel’s new nuke-capable missile, which can target many parts of the globe, is not considered a threat in the eyes of the West.
