Salami Vows To Destroy Israel
Iran has appointed a new general to oversee the Revolutionary Guard, Hossein Salami . It is no secret that this hardline military leader seeks to destroy Israel.
He has threatened the US and Israel in the past.‘‘Today, more than ever, there is fertile ground — with the grace of God — for the annihilation, the wiping out, and the collapse of the Zionist regime,’’ said in a July 2016 speech, claiming 100,000 Qaem missiles were aimed at Israel from Lebanon and ready to launch.
‘‘..any time the Zionist regime seeks to repeat its previous mistakes with miscalculations, these missiles would… come down on the heart of the Zionist regime and be the prelude for a big collapse in the modern era... They are just waiting for the command, so that when the trigger is pulled, the accursed black dot will be wiped off the geopolitical map of the world, once and for all.’’
More recently, Salami threatened the ‘‘triangle’’ of Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the United States over a September attack on a military parade that killed 29. ‘‘You are responsible for these actions; you will face the repercussions,’’ the general said. ‘‘We warn all of those behind the story, we will take revenge.’’
