Iranian DM: Israel needs to be punished badly

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the Israeli regime needs to be given a major punishment by the world nations so that it would not continue or repeat its barbaric crimes against the Palestinians.

“The usurper Zionist regime should be punished (for its crimes in Gaza),” Brigadier General Dehqan said, addressing Iranian commanders in Tehran on Monday.

The Iranian defense minister noted that Israel’s savage actions show the regime’s destitute and meantime indicate that “the political life of this bloodsucking regime is nearing its end”.

“Today the human society is standing at a strategic decision-making juncture and it has to show that humans, humanity and human life as well as protecting human values are still important,” General Dehqan stated.

The Iranian defense minister pointed to the merciless crimes of the Israeli regime against the people of Gaza, and said, “The Zionist regime’s crimes in Gaza showed that the international legal institutes that are trying to protect peace and establish security not only keep mum about inhumane crimes and manslaughter where the interests of the global arrogance forces them to do so, but also support and take side with criminals.”

Earlier today, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari underlined his forces’ readiness to support Palestinian resistance groups in their fight against the Israeli regime.

“We are ready to support the Palestinian resistance in different dimensions,” Jafari told reporters in Tehran.

“When speaking about defending the Muslims, Shiites and Sunnis are of no difference to us, and our devotion and dedication goes to all the Muslim world and the oppressed” he added.

Jafari underlined that unity among Shiites and Sunnis will soon annihilate the Zionist regime and “we are ready for that day”.

Meantime, he praised the resistance shown by the Palestinian groups, and said, “The Gaza war displayed that the power of the Resistance (front) has no end and has been institutionalized.”

“This power is growing; massive launch of missiles, defusing and repelling the enemy’s ground offensive and upgrading the Palestinians’ threshold of tolerance all testify to this increased power ( of the Palestinian resistance groups),” the IRGC top general said.
