BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 A.M.) – An Iranian general said on Thursday evening that if a war were to break out between the Islamic Republic and Israel, it would result in the latter’s ‘termination’.
“We warn them [Zionists] that if a new war breaks out, it will result in their termination,” Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami, deputy commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps, said at a press conference in the Iranian city of Mashhad, according to the regime-linked Tasnim News Agency.
A new war “will result in Israel’s defeat within three days, in a way that they will not find enough graves to bury their dead,” he added.
Earlier this week, Salami issued a similar warning in which he threatened to remove Israel from the map if they were to continue attacking Iran in Syria.
“We announce that if Israel takes any action to wage a war against us, it will definitely lead to its own elimination and freeing of occupied territories,” Salami said, according to Reuters.
“Iran’s strategy is to remove the Zionist regime from the political map, and the Israelis contribute to this by their criminal activities,” he added.
