Does that mean military action against Iran is forthcoming? Iranians are leaving no chances particularly because of past Israeli military actions directly on the country.
A senior Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commander played down the Israeli threat of war with Iran, according to Tehran-based Press TV. Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh of the IRGC’s Aerospace Division adds that Tel Aviv is well aware that initiating a confrontation will only bring its annihilation forward as was quoted by the Iranian website.
He warned: "A war against Iran will lead to the "destruction of the Zionist regime," and if they dare do something against it, "they will not see beyond the current period, and, historically speaking, the time of their destruction will be certainly brought closer."
