Syria war to cause Israel destruction: IRGC

Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari has warned any military adventurism in Syria will result in imminent destruction of the Israeli regime.

In an interview with Tasnim news agency on Wednesday, Jafari said that the Zionists should know that military attack on Syria will not save the fake regime but will mean “imminent destruction of Israel.”

“Despite their bitter experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan, Americans will complete their consecutive failures and experience the most shameful historic defeat if they conduct military action against Syria,” added the senior commander.

“And Syria will turn into a more dangerous and deadly battlefield than Vietnam War, and, in fact, Syria will become the second Vietnam for the US.”

The deputy chief of the General Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Masoud Jazayeri also said the fire of a potential military intervention in crisis-hit Syria will “burn” the Israeli regime.

“In case of a military action by the anti-Syria front, the Syrian nation will resist and the result of their resistance will be victory,” said Jazayeri on Wednesday.

“What is currently referred to as the US and Britain’s military action against the innocent Syrian nation is in fact a Zionist operation aimed at boosting the morale of the occupying and dying Zionists,” the Iranian commander stated.

Jazayeri also said that a possible attack against Syria is a “betrayal of humanity” and that the repercussions of such a “heinous” assault would be unpredictable.

The call for military action against Syria intensified after foreign-backed opposition forces accused the Syrian government of launching a chemical attack in the suburbs of Damascus on August 21.

The Syrian government, however, has vehemently denied the accusations, saying the chemical attack was carried out by the militants themselves as a false-flag operation.
