Ongoing Israeli settlement construction will spark a war that will lead to the Jewish state’s “complete destruction,” an Iranian military official said on Thursday, the Tehran regime-aligned Tasnim news agency reported.

A day after US Secretary of State John Kerry assailed Israel’s settlement policies and less than week after the UN Security Council passed an anti-settlement resolution, General Ramezan Sharif — a spokesman for the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps — stated that further settlement building would “definitely provoke a reaction.”

Sharif — according to Tasnim — also called the US abstention from last Friday’s Security Council vote a “sign that Washington has come to realize the course of events and continued settlement construction will result in the collapse of the Zionist regime of Israel.”

Iranian regime officials often issue exterminationist threats against Israel and predict the country’s demise.

    Yeah, Nasser of Egypt said something similar. Now it’s Iran’s turn. They will provoke a war with Israel and they will regret it, just as Nasser did.
