TEHRAN -- The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) spokesman Brigadier General Ramazan Sharif said Sunday Iran will never tolerate deployment of Israeli forces in bases near Iran.
The Zionists have officially announced everywhere that they are against Islamic Republic’s interests, General Sharif said.
“They’ve said that they are seriously after assassinating our prominent figures and identifying our bases,” he stated.
In March, IRGC commander Major General Hussein Salami warned the Persian Gulf Arab states against the threat that Israeli presence poses to the security of the region.
“Unfortunately, some regimes to the south of the Persian Gulf have established political and security relations with the Zionist regime, which poses a serious threat to the security of the region and especially those regimes,” General Salami said while referring to the security situation in the Persian Gulf region, the Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of Oman.
“We explicitly declare and warn that the continuation of such relations are not acceptable at all, and they should know that the existence of the evil Zionist regime everywhere is a cause of insecurity,” he added.
