(February 11, 2019 / JNS) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday warned Iran with annihilation following an Iranian military leader threatening that the regime would destroy major Israeli cities if the United States attacked the Islamic Republic.
The deputy head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps political bureau, Yadollah Javani, said during a rally that the Jewish state would suffer if the United States struck Iran.
“The United States does not have the courage to shoot a single bullet at us despite all its defensive and military assets. But if they attack us, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground,” said Javani, according to state news agency IRNA, reported Reuters.
“I don’t ignore the threats from the Iranian regime, but I’m also not intimidated by them,” said Netanyahu in a video.
“If this regime makes the terrible mistake and tries to destroy Tel Aviv or Haifa, it won’t be successful, and it will be the last anniversary of their revolution they will ever celebrate,” he continued. “They better take that into account.”
The threat fro Tehran came as Iran celebrated 40 years since the Islamic Revolution.
