Iran warns 'ARROGANT' Israel would be 'ELIMINATED' in World War 3 as region tensions soar

IRAN has warned “arrogant” Israel that it will be “eliminated” in World War 3 and their “hands are on the trigger and missiles are ready” as tensions between the two nations continue to soar to an all time high.

General Hossein Salami, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Deputy Commander Brigadier said: ​”Don’t trust your airbases. They’re within reach,” as part of the shocking warning given in Tehran

He added: “Wherever you are in the occupied land, you’ll be under fire from us, from east and west. You became arrogant. If there’s a war, the result will be your complete elimination.”

Local media stated the remarks were “in apparent reaction to Israel’s publication on Tuesday of a map showing five Tehran-controlled bases in Syria.”

Hossein Dalirian, a reporter at Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, tweeted that vice-commander Mr Salami had said Iran’s “hands are on the trigger and missiles are ready” and “will be launched at any moment that enemy has a sinister plot”.

On April 9, Israeli aircrafts fired at the T-4 air base in central Syria, which was confirmed at the time by Moscow, Damascus, Tehran and US officials.

On Wednesday, it was reported that the strike was discussed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Donald Trump before the strikes were ordered. read more
