Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps commander Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari has vowed that any future conflict with Israel will be the Jewish state’s last, and promised to come to Hezbollah’s aid if the terrorist group is attacked.
He told reporters in Tehran:
“It is a proven claim that today we say any new war will lead to the eradication of the Zionist regime. They have seen a part of the resistance front’s power during the 33-day and 22-day wars and today that the great resistance front has been formed, this word has been proven,” He told reporters in Tehran. “The fate of the resistance front is interwoven and they all stand united and if Israel attacks a part of it, the other component of the front will help it. This issue is not negotiable and the entire Lebanese nation, except a number of little puppet groups, support Hezbollah’s weapon.”
Jafari followed up those comments by telling a group of “Basij” volunteer fighters they are the role model for national defense units in other Middle Eastern countries as part of the effort to “destroy the U.S. hegemony in the Middle East.” He added:
“While, one day, our nation was fighting the enemy at borders of Karkheh river, now it has expanded its strategic borders in this fight against enemies to the East of the Mediterranean and North of Africa. The Islamic Revolution is spreading and the Basiji way of thinking has made the arrogant power face with a deadlock and a landmark historical defeat and failure.”
