Friday, 15 September 2023 | Hossein Salami, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), said on Thursday that threats from the Mossad chief will make his life shorter after David Barnea said Israel will take its retaliation for any attack against Israelis to Tehran.
“Go ahead if your previous assassination operations have increased your security,” Salami was quoted by the Iranian news agency Tasnim as saying. “However, you should know that if you make threats against [Iran’s] security, we will have more options and your life will be cut short.”
“Our adversaries cannot continue speaking to us through military or economic threats. It has been more than a decade since they put us under a comprehensive embargo, yet our progress has been astonishing, in technology, innovation and creative societal management,” the IRGC commander said.
Salami’s remarks came just four days after Barnea issued a stern warning to Iran in which he said Tehran was spreading terror globally and attempting to target Israelis and Jews around the world. “Attacks on Israelis or Jews, by any means, and I stress, any means, whether by proxies [or] Iranians penetrating Israel will lead to actions against both those who sent the terrorists and those who authorized the operation, from the planner to the decision-maker. I mean it. The costs will be exacted deeply, inside Iran and in the heart of Tehran.”
“Iran has gained an enhanced maritime security capability as a result of its assistance to Russia in selling advanced naval systems,” said Barnea during the annual conference of the Institute for Counter-Terrorism Policy (ICT) at the Reichman University. “We know they had intentions to sell short and long-range missiles, an endeavor that was thwarted. I have a sense that additional efforts will be thwarted soon.”
