BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 P.M.) – The Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Hossein Salameh, stated on Friday that Israel was force to back off after the Syrian military responded in the occupied Golan Heights.
“When the Zionists attacked the T4 Airbase in Syria and martyred a number of our youth, they imagined that they would not receive any response,” the IRGC commander began.
“They thought they could intimidate the resistance front with the support of the U.S. and Britain and thought that no one would respond to them and as you all witnessed they said if we (the Resistance Front) retaliated,” he continued.
“They vowed to put an end to the Syrian government but they received a response in the Golan and tens of missiles flew over the region; this was the message sent to them. We threatened to raze to the ground the heart of Tel Aviv and they were forced to shut up and haven’t done a damn thing since then,” General Salameh said, addressing the Iranian people in a per-sermon speech at the Friday prayers in the Northeastern city of Mashhad today.
Since the assault on the T-4 Airbase, Israel has launched at least two attacks against the Syrian government forces in western Syria.
