The Spokesman for Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), General Ramezan Sharif, made the remarks in a gathering on Wednesday in the western Iranian city of Boroujen in commemoration of Iranian martyrs of the eight-year war with Iraq in the 1980s.
“Even if the Zionists bomb all of Gaza, their military and security dignity will not return. You can be sure that the resistance fighters who carried out the operation, know the Zionists well,” the commander said.
He was referring to the surprise attack by the Palestinian group Hamas against Israel on October 7 during which 1400 Israelis were killed and more than 200 others were nabbed, that saw the Israeli military and intelligence failure.
General Sharif underlined that the Palestinian resistance fighters “crushed the fake Zionist regime” by carrying out its surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.
The Iranian commander said the operation shattered the Israeli regime’s “fake grandeur”.
He also warned if the Israeli military starts a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip, it will cause “a bigger disgrace” for the occupying regime.
