If Iran Attacks Israel, It Will be Tehran’s Last ‘Revolution Day’: Netanyahu

It would be Iran’s last anniversary of the revolution if it attacks Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened on Monday in response to an Iranian commander.

A senior Iranian Revolutionary Guards Commander (IRGC), during a speech on Monday at a rally in the capital Tehran marking the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution, threatened to raze both Tel Aviv and Haifa, after which, the Israeli premier responded: try it, and that will be the Tehran’s last anniversary.

“I do not ignore the threats of the Iranian regime but neither am I intimidated by them,” Netanyahu said, as quoted by The Jerusalem Post. “If this regime makes the awful mistake of trying to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa, it will not succeed. However, this would be the last anniversary of the revolution that they celebrate. They should take this into account.”

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump called the Iran’s revolution a “complete failure”.

“40 years of corruption. 40 years of repression. 40 years of terror. The regime in Iran has produced only #40YearsofFailure. The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future,” Trump wrote on Twitter in both English and Farsi languages. Source
