“Enemies’ aggression against Iran’s territorial integrity, at any level, will receive a severe response,” Brigadier General Hatami said on Friday, after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made provocative remarks against Tehran on Tuesday.
Hatami described Netanyahu’s threats against Iran a clear violation of paragraph 4 of article 2 of the UN Charter which urges all members not to make threat and use force against other UN countries, including regional countries and Iran.
He called on international bodies to react against such hostile acts which put international peace in danger.
Hatami also stressed that the Iranian Armed Forces are fully prepared to respond to any act of aggression with a decisive and severe response.
On July 9 and during a visit to an air force base, Netanyahu threatened Iran that Tel Aviv’s F-35 fighter jets can reach “anywhere in the Middle East”.
“Iran should remember that these warplanes can reach every place in the Middle East, including Iran, and of course also Syria,” said Netanyahu.
On Wednesday, International lawyer and peace activist Barry Grossman said Netanyahu’s threat to use F-35 warplanes against Iran is funny because it is beyond Israel’s capability.
Israel’s war rhetoric against Iran is not something new, and the tiny country has on numerous occasions threatened Iran with airstrikes.
Responding to similar remarks in 2013, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said, “Israel’s leaders sometimes threaten Iran, but they know that if they do a damn thing, the Islamic Republic will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground.”
