Iranian Defense Minister Threatens to Raze Tel Aviv and Haifa
Iran's Defense Minister Amir Hatami threatened on Sunday to "raze" the cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa "to the ground" if Israel launches a preemptive attack against the Islamic Republic.
At the same time, Hatami also played down the chances of direct hostilities breaking out between the two countries, saying Israel is well aware of the potential consequences of such actions.
“Sometimes, the Zionist regime [Israel] out of desperation makes big claims against the Islamic Republic of Iran to allegedly threaten it,” said the Iranian Defense Minister.
“It must know that if it does a damn thing, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground,” he warned.
Hatami added that Iran has enough resources to “maintain the stability of the country” and boasted of its regional power via “resistance groups.” (INN / VFI News)
