BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 P.M.) – Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei appointed a new commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on Sunday morning.

According to a report from Tehran, Iran’s Supreme Leader appointed General Hossein Salami as the commander of the IRGC Forces.

General Salami is replacing General Mohammad Akon Jaafari as the commander of the IRGC; he had been the leader of this military branch since 2007.

The new IRGC commander is considered more aggressive than his predecessor when it comes to military issues, including confrontations with Israel and the United States.

Earlier this year, General Salami vowed to destroy Israel if they attempt to start a new war with Iran.

“We announce that if Israel takes any step to start a new war, without a doubt, this war would be the same war, which would end in its elimination and the occupied territories will be retaken,” Salami said.

In another speech in February, General Salami said Iran was “planning to break America, Israel, and their partners and allies. Our ground forces should cleanse the planet from the filth of their existence.

The new IRGC commander is no doubt more hostile in his rhetoric than his predecessor, but he is also considered more aggressive militarily.

The appointment of Salami comes just days after U.S. President Donald Trump designated the IRGC a terrorist group.

The noose is tightening quickly around the impostor eurocentric yahoodi neck. The zionistas can thank Schneerson, Herzl, the Polish Prince Netanhaha and all of their ilk for what is about to befall the failed zionist experiment.

Objectively speaking, Israel is a fake state buoyed by western taxpayers. It is weaker than a spiders web and faces the same future as its Apartheid role model.

Sounds like a good man for the times. Iran faces existential threats from US and Zios and needs strong battle tested leadership. The US thugs only understand the logic of force and strength. Iran should also test a nuke.

Genral salami had far better realized & outspoken the truth about the arch rivals Israel, the zionist & its so called ally America,
All Islamic states need to take stern stance against the perpetrators of Muslim ummah,
Above from all grievousness & discrepancies cults & sects we need to be united against the force of “kufr” i endorsed the general salami statement ahead of the US attempt to make Iran as an isolated state by imposing sanctions.
