Iran will respond to the Israeli occupation’s interferences in the internal affairs of the region’s countries as “Tel Aviv” tries to establish relations with the regional states to try and achieve its goals, according to the Iranian Armed Forces Chief of Staff Mohammad Bagheri.
“The membership of the Israeli occupation in CENTCOM and the deployment of its equipment in the region, as well as its participation in military exercises with the US, creates the grounds for threats,” Bagheri said during a meeting with the Pakistani Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, Nadeem Raza.
“Iran will not put up with these threats, and it will definitely respond to them,” Major General Bagheri added. “Our region is sensitive, and the latest developments led non-regional countries to interfere, which created regional issues.”
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh previously underlined that the Iranian response to the Israeli occupation’s crimes and violations would take place on occupied Palestinian soil, not that of third countries.
The past year was a turning point in the war against Iran, Israeli occupation Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said, and his comments received a lot of traction from Israeli media and Israeli officials, with the former reporting that the Israeli security and military apparatuses were not very keen on the statements, as they saw that they could provoke Iran.
“All the Israeli operations that took place on Iranian soil will not stop Iran from moving in two pivotal areas: nuclear capabilities and armament, as well as the means of posing a threat on land,” retired Israeli Major General Eitan Dangot told Israeli Channel 12.
The meeting between major General Bagheri and General Raza is aimed at enhancing bilateral cooperation between Tehran and Islamabad within the framework of establishing long-lasting peace in the region and enhancing military cooperation and joint security work.
