A former leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has said that Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa can be targeted to avenge a general killed by a U.S. drone strike in Baghdad.
Mohsen Rezaee made the disclosure on Sunday in Tehran at a ceremony in honor of the slain leader Qassem Soleimani.
Meanwhile, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, expressed support for the U.S. strike. “Israel stands totally with the U.S. in its just struggle for security, peace and self-defense,” he said in praising President Donald Trump.
The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah group said Sunday that America’s military in the Middle East region, including U.S. bases, warships and soldiers, are fair targets following the U.S. killing of Iran’s top general.,
Hassan Nasrallah said evicting U.S. military forces from the region is now a priority.
Speaking before thousands of supports at a rally in southern Beirut, Nasrallah called the killing of Soleimani a “clear, blatant crime” that will transform the Middle East.
