“The disturbing remarks of the foreign minister of the fake Israeli regime against the great nation of Iran” were a pipe dream, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian tweeted.
In an interview on Friday Lapid, when asked if Israel had the ability to strike uranium enrichment facilities or weapons sites in Iran claimed: “Israel has capabilities, some of which the world, and even some experts in the field, cannot even imagine. And Israel will protect itself against the Iranian threat.”
He also suggested that Israel could attack Iran, if necessary, without informing the administration of US President Joe Biden, which is looking to rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal.
Israel vocally opposed the accord between Iran and world powers from which former US president Donald Trump withdrew and reimposed sanctions on Iran.
“We will forcefully and rationally defend the rights, interests and progress of the Iranian people,” Amir-Abdollahian fired back.
“Zionism has no place in the future of the world,” he added.
The Israeli regime has never stopped advertising the threat of “military action” against Iran and falsely accusing the Islamic Republic of seeking to acquire non-conventional military capability.
Iranian generals, for their part, have decisively warned the Tel Aviv regime on multiple occasions against any adventurism against the country, pledging a crushing response to any attack, Press TV wrote.
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) launched a massive military exercise last week, following which both Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Mohammad Baqeri and IRGC Chief Commander Hossein Salami warned that the Iranian Armed Forces will “cut off” the hands of aggressors in case of an attack against the country.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great progress in developing and manufacturing a broad range of domestically-manufactured equipment, making the Armed Forces self-sufficient in this regard.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the Islamic Republic will not hesitate to build up its defense capabilities, emphasizing such abilities are entirely meant for the purpose of defense and will be never subject to negotiations.
