Iran Top Military Commander Renews Warning to Israel
TEHRAN (FNA)- Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi cautioned Israel to stay away from Iran, warning that Tehran will "demolish the illegal Zionist nest" if it comes under Israeli attack.
Addressing a meeting with senior Iranian Armed Forces commanders and officials, Firouzabadi threatened to "bulldoze" and "destroy the illegal Zionist nest," if Israel attacks the Islamic Republic.
Iran would "flatten" strategic locations in Israel if attacked, he added.
Israel has made repeated threats to use force against Iran to deter the latter's nuclear program.
Firouzabadi further mentioned that Iran's "deterrent power" had reduced the threat of enemy invasion of the Islamic Republic.
He added that "apart from the occupiers of Jerusalem, who are already on death row, nobody else is whispering about war".
"The Zionist regime should listen to its leaders and stop their paranoia," the chief of staff said.
