IRGC Commander: Israel Nearing Demise
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari underlined that the Israeli regime has come closer to its final collapse after its recent air attack on the Golan Heights in Syria that resulted in death of a number of Hezbollah members and Iranian military advisor Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi.
“The Quds occupying regime is making its last moves and it knows that it is nearing its end,” Major General Jafari told reporters on Tuesday.
The IRGC commander pointed to Israel’s fear from the presence of Iranian military advisors in Syria, and said, “… They (the Israelis) have experienced eight-year-long resistance, the 33-day war and the resistance shown in Gaza and Palestine”, and they know how powerful and steadfast the Resistance Front is.
Last Sunday, an Israeli helicopter struck Quneitra in Syria’s Golan Heights, killing Brigadier General Allahdadi as well as the son of slain Hezbollah top commander Imad Mughniyeh and 4 other Hezbollah members.
On Monday, Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi underscored that the last Sunday Israeli attack that killed a number of Hezbollah members and an Iranian military adviser in Syria justified striking painful blows at the Zionist regime.
Martyrdom of Allahdadi meant an order to set the holy Quds free and a permission for giving a proper response to the Zionist regime,” Naqdi said in Tehran on Monday.
“His martyrdom again proved that the Takfiris are the military wing of the Zionist regime and displayed the US asymmetric warfare against the Islamic Ummah,” he added.
Naqdi warned the Zionists that they will soon be forced to leave the occupied Palestinian territories, and said, “They will not experience tranquility, these bloods will not remain without a response and they should remain fully alerted until complete annihilation of the Zionist regime.”
In relevant remarks on Thursday, Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC Brigadier General Hossein Salami stressed that the Israeli air raid was the result of the US and the Zionist regime’s continued failures in the region, and warned Israel to wait for a crushing response.
“This action (the Israeli attack) was the reflection of numerous defeats that both Americans and Israelis have suffered in their current strategies,” he said.
Salami said their failure in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and Bahrain made them understand that their existence was on the decline.
“They have seen IRGC’s reactions before, and (therefore) they are worried, and they will witness destructive thunderbolts in practice,” he said.
“They (Israeli officials) should be waiting for crushing responses,” Salami said.
