The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the Zionist regime is on its path toward collapse because of various weaknesses that are intrinsic to it and external regional forces that seek its annihilation.
Major General Hossein Salami made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on the sidelines of a national gathering of commanders and staff officials of the IRGC on Monday.
“The Zionist regime is moving toward collapse, because from the beginning it lacked the constituent elements of a creditable and official political system,” Salami said, adding that Israel has “neither a land of its own, nor population, nor even an established [political] system [recognized] in the world’s history.”
Salami then noted, “Internal problems and issues that are nagging this regime and its acts of mischief in the region have galvanized the Islamic world against it and caused armed groups and big armies to take position against it. [All these factors,] have naturally put it on the path to collapse.”
The Zionist regime has neither a “strong, deep-rooted and sustainable” economy, nor has its roots deep in any land, nor enjoys a coherent demographic geography, he said.
Salami emphasized that the Tel Aviv regime has many enemies in the region who “all want, in fact, its elimination from the political geography and therefore this will happen naturally.”
Last month, Salami highlighted the growing power of the anti-Israel resistance front in the region, including Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine, saying, “The enemy is well aware that any new war may expose the Zionist regime to full-scale threat and irreversible collapse.”
