(October 15, 2020 / MEMRI) The deputy commander of political affairs for Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said in a recent interview that Tehran’s “harsh revenge” against the United States for the killing of IRGC Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani is yet to come.
Speaking with Iraq’s Etejah TV on Oct. 9, IRGC Gen. Yadollah Javani reiterated Commander Gen. Hossein Salami’s threat that Iran will target all of those involved in Soleimani’s death.
Javani also said that the United States is in no position to wage a war against Iran, that Iran will respond harshly to any attack or threat, and that countries in the region that help the United States or Israel would also be “crushed” should the United States or Israel attack the Islamic Republic.
Iran, he warned, is capable of closing the Strait of Hormuz. and of razing Tel Aviv and Haifa.
