IRGC Qods Force Deputy Commander: Resistance Forces Bringing Zionist Regime Closer to Collapse

TEHRAN (FNA)- New Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Qods Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Fallahzadeh warned the Zionist regime that the resistance forces deployed near Israeli interests are paving the ground for the regime's collapse.

"The occupier Zionist regime should know that the resistance groups are stationed all over the planet next to their bases and are bringing them closer to collapse at any moment," General Fallahzadeh said in the Central city of Isfahan on Thursday, addressing a ceremony to commemorate his predecessor Brigadier General Seyed Mohammad Hossein Hejazi, a veteran of the Iraqi imposed war on Iran in the 1980s who was suffering the chemical wounds of the war throughout the past several decades and died of heart failure on Sunday evening.

"In line with the words made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, the Zionist regime will not see the next 25 years, a now a few years have passed since he made these remarks," he added.

The Second-in-Command of the IRGC's Qods Force further added that the blood of martyrs Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani (the late commander of the IRGC Qods Force) and General Hejazi runs through the veins of Islamic Ummah and their blood will not go in vain.

He also vowed that the Islamic nations will not give up their struggle and "as the Late Imam Khomeini promised, Islam will conquer all the key trenches in the world one after another and the flag of Islam will be hoisted above all heights in the world".

In relevant remarks on Monday, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Hossein Salami warned the Zionists that their joy over the demise of General Hejazi will not last long, saying that the Palestinian nation will annihilate the Zionist regime.

“I have heard that the Zionists are happy (of General Hejazi’s demise which happened due to the impacts of chemical wounds sustained during the Iraqi-imposed war against Iran in 1980s), but we tell the Zionists that their happiness will not last long. They will disappear at the hands of the same nation they have expelled from their land. Do not be happy, we will continue this path and no one will leave this front,” General Salami said, addressing the funeral ceremony of General Hejazi.

He underlined cooperation between late General Hejazi and the Lebanese resistance group, Hezbollah, in the fight against the Israeli occupation and aggression, and said, “Together with the Hezbollah brothers, he set the stage for the annihilation of the rotten Zionist regime.”

“The Zionists had put his name on their assassination list and were looking for an opportunity to attack this great commander,” General Salami said.
