Iran says Western counties are not safe from Israel’s threats – Tehran Times
TEHRAN – Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said on Monday that the Zionist regime of Israel is not just a threat to the Islamic countries, but the U.S. and the Western countries are not safe from its threats.
The Zionist regime of Israel has hundreds of atomic warheads and other weapons of mass destruction and is the “center of war mongering” in the world, he stated.
He also said that the Zionist regime of Israel fully supports the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant and seeks to “occupy the land from the Nile to the Euphrates”.
The Iranian defense minister also said that the Zionist regime of Israel is symbol of “terrorism, aggression and genocide”.
Dehqan went on to say that the Quds Day will foil all the Zionists regime’s plans to marginalize the issue of Palestine.
The Zionist regime has been seeking to prevent the Muslims from getting united and integrated through creating division and war among Muslims, he said.
He added that the Quds Day’s rallies can foil this “evil plot” and lay the ground for unity among Muslims.
The defense chief also said that the international organizations’ silence toward the Zionist regime’s crimes has emboldened this regime to continue committing “evil doings and crimes”.
Putting the Zionist regime on trial and punishing it as a “war criminal” is the “least” action that can be taken against the regime, he noted.
Al-Quds Day is the last Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan declared by the late founder of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini as an international day of struggle against Israel and for the liberation of Jerusalem.
