A spokesman for Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) asserted on Wednesday that Lebanese and Palestinian “resistance” organizations — i.e. the Hezbollah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups — were capable of destroying Israel in the event of a future war.

According to Iran’s semi-official state news agency Fars, General Ramezan Sharif told attendees at a ceremony in the northeastern city of Torbat-e Jam, “Friends and enemies admit that today Israel is in its worst conditions and the fighters in Palestine and Lebanon are at the peak of their preparedness to confront any aggression by the Zionists and end the disgraceful life of the fake and criminal regime.”

“This is a full-scale reality and it is even admitted by the fronts which support the Zionists,” he claimed.
