Iranian officials warned the United States and Israel against all acts of aggression against Tehran this week, threatening to “level Tel Aviv to the ground” and kill Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should Israel “move against Iran.”
According to the Jerusalem Post, the Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei issued the stark threat while speaking with regional reporters, saying Iran was poised to strike directly at Israel and adding that Netanyahu “will not have any opportunity” to escape the attack.
“If they [Israel] carry out the slightest unwise move against Iran, we will level Tel Aviv to the ground and will not give any opportunity to Netanyahu to flee,” said Rezaei.
“The US and Israeli leaders don’t know Iran and don’t understand the power of resistance and therefore, they continuously face defeat,” he added. “Today, the situation of the US and Israel indicate their fear of the Zionist regime’s collapse and the US decline.”
The Iranian warning comes days after Israel warships destroyed Tehran-supplied anti-aircraft batteries in Syria used in an unprovoked attack against the Israeli Air Force.
