Iran, Raisi to Israel: “If they attack us, we will destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa”

Tensions rise in the Middle East between Iran and Israel. During the military parade in Tehran on National Army Day, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi addressed Israel directly, declaring that “the slightest move against Iran by enemies, especially the Zionist regime, will receive a harsh response from the Iranian armed forces and will lead to the destruction of Tel Aviv and Haifa”.

Ray’s words

“The message from the Armed Forces of Iran to the extra-regional forces present in the region, especially the American forces, is that they must leave the region as soon as possible because this will be beneficial to both them and the region,” the president said Raisi, according to what the state TV reports. “The presence of these forces not only does not help stabilize security in the region but on the contrary threatens regional security,” Raisi said, adding that “the power of the Iranian forces brings benefits to the region since they have always safeguarded the sovereignty and security of regional countries”.

The parade

On the occasion of National Army Day, the Iranian Armed Forces marched in large parades in various cities across the country. During the parade in Tehran, the four divisions of the Army – the Land Forces, Navy, Air Force and Air Defense Forces – displayed their equipment.
