Ahead of ‘Al-Quds Day,’ Iranian Army Expresses Hope for ‘Collapse’ of Israel
Ahead of “Al-Quds Day” on Friday, the Iranian Army published a statement on Wednesday in which it expressed hope that “the world will witness the collapse” of Israel “very soon,” the semi-official state news agency Mehr reported.
In the statement, the Iranian Army referred to Israel as a “cruel regime.”
“Quds Day is the day of solidarity, unity and sympathy of Muslim nations with the oppressed Palestinian people against the evil conspiracies of the Zionist regime and America,” the statement said.
Meanwhile, an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) official, Brig. Gen. Yadollah Jawani, was quoted by Mehr as saying that any US or Israeli military action against Iran would face a “swift and decisive response, and the main losers will be the aggressors,”
“Western countries, particularly Americans and Zionists, have been trying for years to use threats against the Islamic Republic of Iran as a means to impose their will on the Iranian people, but they basically are not able to carry out their threats against the Iranian people, and the main reason for their inability is the might of [the] nation and armed forces to respond to any possible aggression,” Jawani claimed.
