Iran’s Mohsen Rezaei warns Israel against an attack: Iran will ‘level Tel Aviv to the ground’

Iran warned against attacks, promising to respond with the destruction of Tel Aviv. Mohsen Rezaei, secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, warned Israel on Monday that any assault would be “unwise” and Iran would “level Tel Aviv to the ground.”

Rezaei said, “If they [Israel] carry out the slightest unwise move against Iran, we will level Tel Aviv to the ground and will not give any opportunity to Netanyahu to flee.”


Speaking with the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Manar News: “The US and Israeli leaders don’t know Iran and don’t understand the power of resistance and therefore they continuously face defeat.

“Today, the situation of the US and Israel indicate their fear of the Zionist regime’s collapse and the US decline.”

The remarks are in response to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks at the Munich Security Conference after an Israel Air Force attack helicopter shot down an Iranian-operated drone and later took out its command center in Syria.

According to the Iranian Mehr News Agency, which is run by the Islamic Ideology Dissemination Organization, Rezaei also said that while Iran supports what it calls the “Resistance Front” stretching from Tehran to Gaza, the regime does not interfere in the Palestinian territories or in Lebanon but merely offers advisory help.

He added that Iran does not want to dominate the countries in the region, but wants them to stand on their own feet. Rezaei’s pointed comments came in response to Netanyahu’s warning to Iran “not to test Israel’s resolve.”

Netanyahu said at the Munich conference, which was attended by Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, that Israel “will act not just against Iran’s proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself.”

He charged that Iran is trying to change the status quo through nefarious moves in Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza.

If they succeed in changing the status quo, Netanyahu said he will follow the rules previously established: “They said, ‘Nip things in the bud, stop them before they get big.’ That’s basically what our policy is.”

Zarif, who addressed the conference later in the day, dismissed Netanyahu’s presentation as a “cartoonish circus, which does not even deserve a response.”
