The US and the Zionist regime’s threats have no value and at the same time, show their (Israeli) aggressive nature, and reveal their deceitful and misleading claims.” Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi
Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi says military action against Iran will be the Zionist regime’s last mistake. “The US and the Zionist regime’s threats have no value and at the same time, show their aggressive nature, and reveal their deceitful and misleading claims,” Vahidi said on Wednesday. He reiterated Iran’s complete readiness to give a swift response to any military aggression against the country. Vahidi advised US authorities to try and solve the problems in their own country instead of making warmongering remarks. The Iranian Defense Minister made the remarks after US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel supported the Tel Aviv regime’s warmongering rhetoric against the Islamic Republic on April 21, saying Washington and Israel see “exactly the same” threat from Tehran. Vahidi said the United States issues inhuman threats while proudly donating weapons and funds to the criminal regime of Israel, which is notorious for killings and terrorist actions. On April 16, the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee adopted "Senate Resolution 65," according to which the US will provide the Israeli regime with diplomatic, economic and military assistance if Tel Aviv decides to launch an attack against Iran. Israeli Chief of Staff Lt. Gen Benny Gantz said earlier on the same day that, "We have our plans and forecasts.... If the time comes, we'll decide" on whether to take military action against Iran. The US, Israel and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program, with the Israeli regime repeatedly threatening to attack Iran's nuclear facilities based on the unfounded allegation. Iran has rejected the allegations and warned that any military action could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East. MKA/HGH/SS
