IRGC chief to Netanyahu: ‘Don’t play with lion’s tail'

TEHRAN, Jan. 16 (MNA) – Highlighting that Iranian military advisers and weapons will remain in Syria, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Commander Major General Jafari warned Israeli regime’s prime minister of playing with the lion’s tail.

“Fear the day when Iranian precision missiles hit you and take revenge of all the blood of oppressed Muslims which you have shed,” Mohammad Ali Jafari asaid on Wednesday.

The remarks came after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that his country will continue conducting airstrikes in Syria targeting what is claimed to be Iranian units. He also urged Iran to “get out of there fast”.

Describing Netanyahu’s threat as ‘ridiculous’, Jafari stressed that “the Islamic Republic of Iran will keep in Syria all the military and revolutionary advisers, and equipment and weapons which aim to train and empower Islamic Resistance forces and support oppressed people of the country.”

"Be sure that we do not take into account your ridiculous threats. You know that if we have chosen to wait against your hostile measures, some considerations lies behind it.”

Referring to Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi who has said that Iran does not have any military force in Syria, IRGC chief noted Ghasemi’s remarks means that Iran does not have a military unit in Syria.

Israeli regime is well aware of Iranian military forces power and hence fears the presence of even one Iranian in Syria, he added.
