Any Operation By Israel Will Be Responded By Several Blows - Ex-IRGC Chief

6/15/2022

The former commander-in-chief of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard says when Israel carries out an operation against Iran, it receives several responses in retaliation.

Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said on Wednesday that Israeli officials know what blows they have received from the Islamic Republic so far, “some of which are still in progress” but have remained confidential.

He said Israel “has suffered several blows from the Islamic resistance in different countries across the region, and even inside the occupied Palestinian territories.”

Refereeing to the assassination IRGC’ Quds Force colonel Hassan Sayyad-Khodaei – who was killed outside his home in Tehran late in May -- Jafari said that unlike Israel the Islamic Republic cannot publicize many of these blows as these operations have often been kept confidential. 

Following reports of a thwarted plot by Iranian agents to target Israelis in Turkey and a drone attack at Iraq's Erbil last week, the Iranian foreign ministry spokesman said Monday that any “response” by the Islamic Republic against Israel would take place inside Israel “and not in a third country.”

On Sunday, Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein criticized Iran for its aggressive behaviors toward Iraq and the Kurdistan Autonomous Region, and denied Tehran’s allegations that the Israeli Mossad is present in Erbil, saying “We find it strange that Iran chose the Kurdistan region to respond to Israel.”

In March, Iran fired missiles at Erbil. No one was killed but missiles did damage to some residential buildings. Iran claimed it used 12 ballistic missiles in that attack and targeted an Israeli intelligence center.
