Death knell of Israel heard in Tel Aviv: Iran’s Top General

Tasnim – Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said the anti-Israeli resistance in Palestine and other countries has sounded the death knell for the Zionist regime, adding that such sense of doom is felt in the streets and garrisons of Tel Aviv.

In a message released on Wednesday on the occasion of the International Quds (Jerusalem) Day, Major General Baqeri said the Palestinian Intifada (uprising) has gone beyond the occupied territories and entered a new decisive stage.

The far-reaching impacts of the Palestinian resistance in Quds and the surrounding territories have eroded the will of occupiers, the general said, adding, “These days, the death knell of usurper Israel can be heard even in the streets and garrisons of Tel Aviv.”

He also lashed out at certain reactionary Arab regimes for siding with the US in the treacherous “deal of the century” ploy and for seeking normalization of political ties with the “fake, usurper and child-murdering Zionist regime.”

Zionism is currently stuck in a large morass of problems and incidents and is no more capable of ensuring the survival of its regime, the Iranian commander added.

In December 2016, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei expressed high optimism that the Israeli regime will perish within the next quarter of a century.

“The Zionist regime – as we have already said – will cease to exist in the next 25 years if there is a collective and united struggle by the Palestinians and the Muslims against the Zionists,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
