Israel to face crushing response: Iran general

A top Iranian commander has warned that Israel should be waiting for a tough response, saying Tel Aviv’s existence is on the wane.

“They (Israeli officials) should be waiting for crushing responses,” said Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the second-in-command of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), on Thursday.

His comments came in reaction to a recent Israeli attack in Syria’s Golan Heights in which senior IRGC commander Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi as well as six members of the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, were killed.

The attack occurred on Sunday when an Israeli military helicopter fired two missiles into Amal Farms in the strategic southwestern city of Quneitra, close to a line separating the Syrian part of the Golan Heights from the Israeli-occupied sector.

Analysts believe the assault was yet another attempt by Tel Aviv to change the balance of war in favor of Takfiri terrorists fighting against Syria.

“This action (the Israeli attack) was the reflection of numerous defeats that both Americans and Israelis have suffered in their current strategies,” the commander added.

He said their failure in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and Bahrain made them understand that their existence is on the decline.

“They have seen IRGC’s reactions before, and [therefore] they are worried, and they will witness destructive thunderbolts in practice,” he said.
