Tens of thousands of missiles located across the Middle East are ready to strike Israel at a moment’s notice, Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami threatened.
“Today, the grounds for the annihilation and collapse of the Zionist regime (of Israel) are provided more than ever,” threatened Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami during weekly Friday prayers in Tehran, according to the country’s semi-official news agency Tasnim.
The IRGC commander warned that should the “Zionists” not learn from their past mistakes, “Today, more than 100,000 missiles are ready to fly from Lebanon,” adding that in addition there are “tens of thousands of destructive long-range missiles” in the region ready to wipe Israel off the map.
“If the Zionists make a wrong move, all the occupied territories will come under attack from dedicated fighters, and God willing, the territories will be liberated,” he said.
Salami’s comments came amidst massive rallies held in Iran marking international Al-Quds Day. Thousands of Iranians filled the streets throughout the country, carrying placards and chanting slogans against Israel and the US — including “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” — and burning American and Israeli flags.
