The commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Hossein Salami, has recently said that the country now has the capacity to destroy Israel.
Major General Salami said that Israel is a “sinister regime” and “must be erased from the map,” according to the Revolutionary Guard news site. Hossein says that the destruction of his rival is now their goal.
“This sinister regime (Israel) must be removed from the geography of the world and this is no longer a dream but an attainable goal,” he said.
These comments came two days after the IRGC deputy commander of operations, Abbas Nilforoushan, said “there would be nothing left of Israel” if it attacked Iran.
Iran is currently under strong economic and political pressure; the country frequently attacks the closest ally of the Middle East of the United States, Israel, threatening to destroy it completely.
Discovery of a secret nuclear weapons facility
At the beginning of September, Benjamin Netanyahu, who is the Israeli prime minister, managed to discover a secret installation in Iran; which had been used for the creation of nuclear weapons.
When the Iranians learned that Benjamin had detected the facility, they destroyed it.
The Jewish people have been able to attack some Iranian military assets located in Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon in recent months; In this way, they have avoided being attacked by the regime.
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, officially designated the IRGC as a terrorist organization; This has brought sanctions against Iran.
One of the sanctions is the freezing of assets that the IRGC may have from the US jurisdictions, as well as the prohibition that Americans can do business with the Guard.
