Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf has called Israel a “big lie,” emphasizing that the collapse of the occupying Tel Aviv regime is a reality that will materialize in the near future.

Addressing a ceremony in western Tehran on Friday evening, Qalibaf said the collapse of the child-killing regime has just begun.

Jewish immigrants to Israel now well know they are no longer safe there, he said, adding that the reverse migration of two million Israeli settlers from the occupied territories is underway.

“Over the past week, the young Palestinians have proven that Israel is nothing but a big lie,” he said.

The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas on October 7 launched Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, an unprecedented attack, against the Israeli regime, declaring the operation was a response to the regime’s violations at the al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East al-Quds.

Israel subsequently launched a massive bombing campaign against the densely populated Gaza Strip. The ongoing Israeli air raids on Gaza have so far killed 1,900 people, including 614 children and 370 women.

The senior Iranian legislator dismissed false impressions about Israel’s military capabilities, describing the regime’s armed forces as a “cartoon army”.

The mass escape of Israeli troops and their refusal to fight against Palestinian warriors brought disgrace to the regime, Qalibaf said.

“The Palestinian youths carried out Operation [Al-Aqsa Strom] by surprise, broke through the Zionist regime’s defense lines and captured its troopers. The shame was much graver when the Zionists carried a sophisticated aircraft away from an air base onboard a trailer. The Zionist regime exhibited that it is simply a fake army,” the lawmaker said.

Qalibaf also said that five administrations have come to office in Israel in almost two years, which exposes the political instability and disputes within the entity.

Palestinians exposed the fake nature of Israel’s security through their widespread retaliatory operations, he added.
