A senior member of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) alerted Israel Friday that Tehran’s “hands are on the trigger and missiles are ready” to strike all Israeli air bases after a map of air bases in Syria believed to be controlled by Iran was shared with Israeli media earlier this week.

In a bellicose speech given in Tehran, IRGC Deputy Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami warned that Israel was living “in the dragon’s mouth” since northern and western Israeli bases were “in the range of our missiles.”

​”Don’t trust your airbases. They’re within reach,” he said, adding that “wherever you are in the occupied land, you’ll be under fire from us, from east and west. You became arrogant. If there’s a war, the result will be your complete elimination.”

According to the Times of Israel, the remarks were “in apparent reaction to Israel’s publication on Tuesday of a map showing five Tehran-controlled bases in Syria.”

On April 9, Israeli aircraft fired upon the T-4 air base in central Syria, which Moscow, Damascus, Tehran and some US officials confirmed at the time. On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the strike was discussed at the highest levels of the US-Israel alliance, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu conferring with US President Donald Trump before ordering the strike.

The strike targeted Iranian air-defense equipment and elements of Iran’s drone program, the WSJ reported. While Netanyahu’s government has refused to comment on the strike, the Times of Israel notes, a senior Israeli military official told Thomas Friedman of the New York Times this week that “it was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets — both facilities and people.”

What if an internal revolt happens inside Saudi Arabia and a regime change situation similar to Iraq, Libya & Syria is made to happen? It is very much possible scenario. House of Saud is pretty weak and today is mainly centered around MBS. Saudi economy is very weak and on the verge of collapse. Many expat labour have not been paid and have lost money and hold grudge. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/saudi-arabia-identifies-pakistani-national-as-jiddah-suicide-bomber-after-ramadan-attack-a7121181.html https://tribune.com.pk/story/1397720/saudi-arabia-arrests-46-suspects-2016-medina-attack/ MBS has already made a lot of enemies in recent times and chances are very much possible for an assassination and no one will know who is behind all that… Read more »

So, because ISIS wants to destroy Zionist regime that’s why Zionist regime is supplying and helping ISIS on the border with Zionist regime. Get your facts straight first and then come here and write something that is true…

Hossein Salami just remembered me some quote :

“This will be a war of extermination, a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian invasions, or the Crusaders’ wars… Each fighter deems death on behalf of Palestine as the shortest road to paradise. The war will be an opportunity for vast plunder.”- Abdul Rahman Azzam Pasha, Secr.Gal of the Arab League, Oct.11 1947

History may repeat…
