A senior military official of Iran made threatening statements against Israel and the United States and emphasized that Tehran would fight Washington despite the recently signed nuclear agreement.

Brigadier General Hossein Salami, a lieutenant commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRCG) said Iran is prepared to “annihilate” the American and Israeli forces once they take even the slightest action against the Islamic Republic.

Salami made his statement after Ayatollah Mohammad Yazdi, the chairman of the Assembly of Experts of Iran said they still consider the United States as their number one enemy.

Iran IRGC actively monitors Israel and U.S. forces

“We monitor their acts day and night [referring to Israel and U.S. forces] and will take every opportunity to set fire to all their economic and political interests if they do a wrong deed,” said Salami as quoted by Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency.

Salami also directly threatened the Israeli and U.S. forces that they would “cut off” their fingers and hands and will throw their dust into the air. He is responding to the multiple claims of U.S. officials that a military option against Iran is still on the table despite the signed nuclear agreement, which was designed to limit the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

Salami previously stated that Iran is ready to engage in a war with the United States. According to him, “We have prepared ourselves for the most dangerous scenarios and this is no big deal and is simple to digest for U.S.; we welcome war with the U.S. as we do believe that it will be the scene for our success to display the real potentials of our power.”

He made his comment after Iran unveiled its new missile defense system to monitor threats from its enemy. The system can detect and trace targets. It can assess hostile targets and determine the type of weapons needed. The data provided by the missile defense systems help Iran’s field commanders to make final decisions easily.

Iran will not negotiate with U.S. on any issue outside the nuclear deal

Separately, Sayyed Ali Hosseini Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of Iran said they are not willing to negotiate with the United States on any issue outside the nuclear agreement.

According to Fars News, Khameini maintained the position of Iran regarding the complete ban on any talks between Iranian officials and their American counterparts on other issues.

“There won’t be any other talks with the White House, except for the nuclear issue. The U.S. positions are fully against the stances of the Islamic Republic,” said Khamenei.

Furthermore, Khamenei said 5+1 negotiated in the nuclear agreement, and the United States was the main party. He noted, “U.S. officials speak very badly, and a decision needs to be taken about the manner they speak.”

He added, “Don’t say that the Americans are uttering these words to convince their internal rivals; of course, I believe that the internal disputes in the U.S. are real, and they have differences and the reason for such a difference is clear to us, but what is officially said needs a response and if no response is given to them, the other side’s remarks will be entrenched.”
