Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan says the West, including the US, is not safe from the threats of the Israeli regime.

The Iranian official described the Tel Aviv regime as a symbol of terrorism, infanticide, occupation, aggression and genocide.

Dehqan made the remarks on Monday ahead of International Quds Day, which falls on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.

He said that the Israeli regime, backed by the US, seeks to create divisions, wars and bloodshed among Muslims to disunite them, stressing that the upcoming Quds Day rallies can foil Israeli plots and further foster unity among Muslims.   

Today, the bloodthirsty Zionist regime, which is in possession of hundreds of nuclear warheads as well as weapons of mass destruction, is the “world’s center of evil, espionage and warmongering” and neither Islamic countries nor the Western ones and even the US will be safe from its threat, the Iranian official said.  

Dehqan also criticized international organizations and the so-called advocates of human rights for remaining silent on the regime’s crimes and underlined the need for Israeli leaders to be tried as war criminals.

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of Iran’s Islamic Republic, designated the last Friday of the lunar month of Ramadan as International Quds Day, during which Muslims across the world hold rallies to show their solidarity with Palestinians.
