Iranian officials ramp up rhetoric ahead of anti-Israel event, Al-Quds Day; Israeli gov’t official: The fact that Iran makes such comments despite increased int’l pressure shows they really believe it.
With the US sending clear public signals to Israel that it is opposed to military action now against Iran, and a cacophonous debate on the matter in Israel, senior Iranian officials continue to threaten Israel with destruction.
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that he was confidant “the fake Zionist (regime) will disappear from the landscape of geography,” Iran’s Mehr News Agency reported.
