BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 A.M.) – Deputy Commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami warned Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates against interfering in Tehran’s domestic affairs or face retaliation, during a speech in Tehran on Friday.

Iran accuses Saudi Arabia and the UAE of backing Saturday’s attack which killed at least 25 people at a military parade in Ahvaz.

“Stop the villainy and conspiracy. You are defeatable, sitting in glass castles. You cannot withstand the blade of vengeance of the Iranian nation. We have been showing self-restraint,” Salami said addressing the two countries during a speech before Friday prayers in Tehran.

“You will gain no success in developing tension and conflict with the Islamic Republic of Iran. You are too small to count as a rival for a great country like Iran, which has been withstanding the most unparalleled empires of human history for 40 years.”

“We warn the US, too, to stop supporting terrorists. This would be harmful to them as well,” Salami continued. “You planned to isolate us, but isolated yourselves. And today there is no other option before you. Do not waste your time by saying worthless and insignificant things.”

On Saturday, at least 25 were killed and another 60 injured, after gunmen opened fire from behind the stands of a military parade in Ahvaz commemorating the 38th anniversary of the start of the eight-year Iran-Iraq war.

Eight members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard were among those killed, according to reports. Both the separatist Al-Ahvaziya armed group and the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack.

All Iran needs now is to save itself from Khamenei and his herd of moronic mullahs.
Remember Koran 17.104 : Allah is a zionist!
Maybe Israel could help? Israelis have enough of all these Muslim zionists who want to steal Jerusalem from Jews and who even dared to plant mosques on the Temple-Mount.
