Brigadier General Hossein Salami added that they “will not find enough graves to bury their dead”, according to the Times of Israel. Mr Salami, second-in-command of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) claimed Iran has developed a “strategic capacity” to beat their enemy. He said: “We warn them that if a new war breaks out, it will result in their termination.”
His comments come amid escalating tensions between the Israel Defence Force and Iranian forces in Syria, after a number of Israeli airstrikes on Iranian targets in the war-torn country.
Iran has proxies in Syria fighting on behalf of Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
The general’s declarations were made at a conference in Mashhad, according to state-run news agency Tasnim.
The agency went on to claim Salami said: “Iran has warned the Zionist regime not to play with fire, because they will be destroyed before the US helped them."
