Iranian general threatens to 'annihilate' Israel

The source, who spoke anonymously, went on to note that it was the first time for Israel to attack Iranian targets in Syria, describing the move as the start of a "new phase".

Anyone who aims to harm Israel will pay a heavy price, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday morning at a special cabinet meeting for the 70th year of declaring Israel.

Things deteriorated two weeks ago when Israel bombed an Iranian air base in Damascus known as T4, killing 14 persons including 7 Iranian officers.

The minister stressed that Israel is ready for every scenario, including a multi-front scenario, adding: "I don't remember a time when we were so prepared and so ready, both the army and the people of Israel".

"When the arrogant powers create a sanctuary for the Zionist regime to continue survival, we shouldn't allow one day to be added to the ominous and illegitimate life of this regime", the commander of Iran's army, Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi, said at a ceremony in Tehran on Saturday, according to the Fars news agency.

Iran, along with Damascus and its big-power backer Russian Federation, blamed Israel for an April 9 air strike on a Syrian air base, T-4, that killed seven Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) members.

"We will not be deterred by the price and we will exact a price from those who seek our souls".

"If any war happens, it will definitely be followed by your annihilation", Salami warned Israel on Friday. He called for those who are on the Northern borders to think carefully about what they are doing, indicating Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah militia.

A set of satellite images released Sunday revealed new details about a strike on an Iranian military base in Syria earlier this month, that is widely believed to have been carried out by Israeli forces despite its refusal to comment on involvement in the strike. Iranian officials have promised unspecified reprisals.

Zarif "is a foreign minister of a country that sent armed drones into Israel and fired missiles at Saudi Arabia", Netanyahu said.

Global media later reported that at least 14 people - including a number of Iranian military personnel - had lost their lives in the raid.
