Iran will strike the United States and Israel if they make even the “slightest error,” warned the commander-in-chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

“If you make the slightest error, we will hit both of you,” said Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami at a ceremony on Thursday marking the 40th day since the death of Quds Force head Qassem Soleimani.

The United States eliminated Soleimani in a strike at the Baghdad Airport on Jan. 3.

The remarks came the same week that Mohsen Rezaee, an Iranian politician and adviser to leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said, “We would raze Tel Aviv to the ground for sure. We have been looking for such a pretext. If they do something, we can use it as a pretext to attack Israel.”

JNS is more than just another news website and syndication service. It is an organization devoted to nonstop reporting, and telling the truth about Israel and Jewish issues unburdened by the biases and institutional blinders that distort so much of what we read, hear and see about these topics elsewhere in the secular and even Jewish press.

At JNS, you get the facts about Israel and Jewish issues without the bias that so often tilts the argument against the Jewish state. JNS articles and columns are republished every week by digital outlets and print newspapers across the globe. But in the age of round-the-clock news coverage, advertising and syndication revenues are not enough to support our continued growth. We need your financial help to keep JNS on target as we continue our fair and accurate reporting.
