In remarks at a cultural ceremony in Tehran on Thursday, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh shrugged off Israeli officials’ threats against Iran, saying the Zionist regime is the only regime in the world arguing about how to survive.
“The (Zionist) regime that discusses its existence is doomed to termination and cannot talk about destroying other countries,” the general added.
He also dismissed the threats from the Israeli officials, reminding the Zionists that they may be able to start a battle, but it is the Islamic Republic that will end it with the termination of the Zionist regime.
If the Zionist regime gives the Islamic Republic an excuse, it will only expedite its termination, he warned.
Elsewhere, General Hajizadeh described the enemies’ call for negotiations about Iran’s missile program as a proof that the Islamic Republic’s drone and missile power has become a thorn in their side.
In remarks in August, IRGC Commander Major General Hossein Salami warned the Zionist regime’s prime minister to be mindful of the consequences of his threats against the Islamic Republic, saying Iran’s defense and offense power is fit for a harsh response to every enemy.
Later in September, an official at Iran’s Khatam al-Anbia Central Base said plans have been devised to counter the threats posed by the Zionist regime, as Tehran has prepared multiple “operational and intelligence scenarios” for action against Israel’s sensitive centers and strategic systems.
