Nowhere in Israel Immune to Resistance Missiles: IRGC Commander
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The anti-Israeli resistance movement can rain missiles down on whole parts of Israel, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said, referring to such vulnerability as a sign of beginning of the Zionist regime’s demise.
“Today, the whole regions in Israel, from the north down to the south, are within the range of the resistance’s missiles, and this means the onset of the Israeli regime’s collapse,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said in a conference in Tehran on Monday.
The commander described liberation of the holy city of al-Quds as one of the main objectives of the Islamic Revolution, and noted, “With God’s grace, al-Quds and Palestine will be conquered (by the anti-Israeli movement).”
He further said allegiance to the “values and principles of the Islamic Revolution” has brought Iran national power, and called on the officials to take account of the “remarkable headway and progress” the country has made in recent years, calling for complete faith in the national power.
“Resistance, countering arrogance and refusing to give in to force have gifted us national might and dignity, not the possession of oil, energy or other things,” Major General Jafari explained.
Pointing to the nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers, the top officer said Iran’s capabilities have thrown the bullying powers, like the US, into a panic.
“Today, America’s surrender is obvious in its political and military behavior and its negotiations,” he said.
Since November 18, senior diplomats from Iran and the sextet have launched a new round of talks in Vienna to draft a lasting accord, meant to end years of Western standoff over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program.
The talks are expected to continue until November 24, a self-imposed deadline for the talks.
On November 24, 2013, Iran and the Group 5+1 (also referred to as the P5+1 or E3+3) signed an interim nuclear deal in the Swiss city of Geneva.
The Geneva deal (the Joint Plan of Action) came into effect in January and expired in July, when the parties decided to extend negotiations until November 24 in the hope of clinching a lasting accord.
