Commander of Iran’s Army Major General Abdolrahim Moussavi warned that his country will give a crushing response to any wrong move or aggression by Israel.
“That we say that the Zionist regime will not see 25 years later doesn’t mean that it will certainly survive for 25 years. There is a prerequisite for this famous sentence, that is if the Zionist regime makes any wrong move, Haifa and Tel Aviv will be razed down to the ground,” General Moussavi said, addressing a ceremony in the Central city of Qom on Monday.
His remarks alluded to the September 2015 comments by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei who described Israel as a “fake” regime, and said there won’t be any Israel in 25 years from now.
“Some of the Zionists have said that given the results of the nuclear negotiations (between Tehran and the world powers), they have been relieved of concerns about Iran for 25 years, but we tell them that basically, you will not see the next 25 years and with God’s grace, nothing under the name of the Zionist regime will exist in the region by then,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of Iranians in Tehran.
He added that the heroic spirit and morale of Muslim fighters will not let the Zionists feel comfort and tranquility in the next 25 years.
Elsewhere, Ayatollah Khamenei warned of the US endless enmity towards the Iranian nation, and said even after the nuclear agreement, whose fate is not yet clear in Iran and the US, the Americans have been hatching plots and approving a bill in the congress against Iran.
He described national might as the only way to end the US plots, and said a strong economy, growing scientific progress and maintaining and reinvigorating the revolutionary spirit and morale of the people, specially the youth, are among ways to boost national might and power.
Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated the need for vigilance against the US plots to influence Iran, and said Tehran had only entered negotiations with Washington just on the nuclear issue “and we will not negotiate with the US in other fields”.
