The IRGC head, Brigadier-General Hossein Salami
The head of the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has threatened Israel with annihilation, claiming that the Jewish state is “very vulnerable” since it is now surrounded by enemies and “in the dragon’s mouth”.
In a speech delivered on Thursday, April 19, the IRGC head, Brigadier-General Hossein Salami, said, “I tell the Zionists that we know you very well and that you are very vulnerable. You have neither strategic depth nor deterrent force; you are the size of an operation in our holy war [the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war]. If you are in any part of the Occupied Territories the intersection of fire from the north and the west is facing you. This is a new phenomenon. You have no way to escape and you live in the dragon’s mouth.
The resistance front is much stronger than in the past. Do not think that new wars will be like the 2008 war which was 33 days and 51 days long. This is a false fantasy. You have seen the resistance front when fighting on the ground with tough Takfiris, how the resistance sweeps them, and how to remove the weeds [terrorists, supposedly] in front of it. You are never more powerful than they are. Your wickedness has increased. Listen; every war that happens, that war will bring your annihilation. For us, the smallest target will be your entire entity, and there is no other goal.But keep in mind that you cannot tolerate the domino falling of the occupation of the land when your citizens or your military forces are escaping from it.
You don’t have a way to escape except to throw yourselves into the sea. Don’t trust your airbases because they are accessible and will soon stop working. Don’t rely on America, France, and England. They will arrive when you no longer exist, like an ambulance arriving to save someone who’s already dead so they do nothing except escort the body to the cemetery. So, watch out for your behavior and don’t make any dangerous miscalculations.”
