Iranian Revolutionary Guards Commander Hossein Salami declared on Wednesday that Lebanese terrorist group “Hezbollah has acquired capabilities in Syria that allow it to destroy Israel alone.”
The warring comments seem to affirm Israel’s concerns over Iranian-backed activity in war-torn Syria, where the Jewish state has admitted to conducting “hundreds of strikes” on Iranian-linked targets.
The comments come after a Lebanese lawmaker affiliated with Hezbollah warned at the beginning of the week that Israel was preparing to wage war against the Iran-backed group and was ready to “confront it.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted that the Israeli military was responsible for carrying out a missile strike on Hezbollah targets in Syria earlier this month.
Salami also addressed the escalating tensions with the United States that were following the seizures of tankers in the Strait of Hormuz and the further breach of the nuclear deal’s terms.
“The Iranian people forgot about talking to the United States and removed it from its thought,” he said in reference to suggestions in recent weeks of possible talks between nations following international calls to reduce tensions.
