Mohammad Ali Jafari, the Iranian IRGC's top commander, denied Iran's intentions to withdraw from Syria, threatening to strike Israel with missiles.
“You should be afraid of the day that our precision-guided missiles roar and fall on your head,” Jafari was quoted as saying by the semi-official ISNA news agency on Wednesday, in a speech full of arrogance.
Jafari said that Iran will keep military forces in Syria. “Iran will keep all its military and revolutionary advisers and its weapons in Syria.”
Jafari called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s threats “a joke” and warned that the Israeli government “was playing with a lion’s tail.”
