IRGC Commander: If Israel Starts a War, It Will End Its Destruction

Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), warned on Thursday that if Israel starts a conflict, Iran will “destroy” it, according to Iranian media.

“The officials of the Zionist regime know that they may be the initiators, but the end is with us; the end of this work is the destruction of the Zionist regime, and if they give us an excuse, they will not see after this period, and their destruction certainly it will advance historically, “added the commander.

Hajizadeh declared that Israel is the only country in the world that speaks of its own survival and continued existence. “A regime that speaks of its existence is doomed to destruction and such a regime cannot speak of the destruction of other countries, and the threats it emits are primarily for domestic consumption,” said the IRGC Aerospace Force commander.

Hajizadeh called Iran’s security “exemplary” and said he did not need to talk about the country’s capabilities “because the enemy is talking enough about Iran’s defense and missile capabilities.”

The commander pointed to efforts by world powers to add negotiations on Iran’s missile program to talks on a return to the JCPOA nuclear deal, saying Iran’s drones have become “a thorn in its side” and that this shows the strength of the country.

On Wednesday, the Brigadier General of the IDF OC Artillery Corps. Neri Horowitz stated that future conflicts with Hamas in the Gaza Strip or Hezbollah in Lebanon could involve clashes between drones.

“The enemy is evolving in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon,” Horowitz said at the UVID 2021 conference. “We must know how to distinguish between a friend and an enemy and deal with enemy capabilities.”

The artillery chief added that the unmanned vehicles will join the fight alongside manned forces in a variety of operations, including strikes, evacuations, security patrols, maneuvers into enemy territory and help expose the enemy and allow soldiers to see and listen in all settings.

Horowitz added that he sees the drones as “an element in the security and strategy of the State of Israel.” He added that in addition to the two UAV units already operational in the Artillery Corps, a third unit will be established in the near future.

On Monday, an Iron Dome battery fired a missile at a Hamas drone crossing the sea from the Gaza Strip, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

Israeli media reports indicated that the small drone was unarmed and being used for surveillance. The drone did not enter Israeli territory.
