A senior cleric in Iran has once again threatened Tel Aviv with destruction, while on Thursday, October 11, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Chief Commander has also claimed that “Israel is near its end”.

“Iran is going to stand side by side the Lebanese Hezbollah until Israel is totally annihilated”, IRGC Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said, adding, “If Iran is threatened outside its borders, Tehran would not hesitate to retaliate extraterritorially.”

Tehran’s temporary Friday Prayer Leader, Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami also warned on Thursday, “Washington should know that If it makes a wrong move and pushes Israel and Saudi Arabia towards a war with Iran, Tel Aviv will be levelled to the ground.”

Khatami, who was speaking in Bojnourd, northeastern Iran, maintained, “Our long range missiles are supporting our resistance and, what has made our fists powerful, are these missiles.” Khatami is a hardliner, often repeating what the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei says.

Echoing the cleric’s comments, Maj. Gen. Jafari vowed that IRGC is standing firm and resolved until the “total annihilation of the Zionist regime, the origin of corruption and destruction”.

The Islamic Republic does not recognize Israel and has repeatedly called for its destruction.

According to IRGC-run Tasnim news agency, in a letter to the secretary general of Lebanese Hezbollah, Hassan Nassrallah, the commander of the Iranian elite force reaffirmed support for the battle against the “Zionist regime” of Israel, which he said is moving closer to its end.

Furthermore, Jafari offered his condolences over death of Aminah Salameh, mother of three Lebanese who are described by the Islamic Republic authorities as “martyrs of the axis of resistance”, including Imad Mughniyah.

Paying tribute to the mother of Mughniyah and all members of the anti-Israeli resistance movement, the Iranian general reasserted the IRGC’s pledge of support for the battle against the Zionist regime of Israel until the termination of such “an epitome of evil and crime”.

Several other officials of the Islamic Republic have also joined the chorus in recent days to offer their condolences for the occasion.

Imad Fayez Mughniyeh, alias al-Hajj Radwan, was the founding member of Lebanon’s Islamic Jihad Organization and number two in Hezbollah’s leadership.
