A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps [IRGC] said that the Zionist entity is "too insignificant" to be considered a threat by Iran.

IRGC Commander: ’Israel’ ’Too Insignificant’ for Iranian War Preparations

The second-in-command of Iran's IRGC, Brigadier General Hossein Salami, told reporters on Friday that the Islamic Republic was preparing to militarily defend itself against world powers but "Israel" was not enough a threat to merit such preparations.

He said Tel Aviv's actions could affect Iran's response to the martyrdom of an IRGC general by the Zionist regime during its latest airstrike on the Syrian section of Golan Heights.

Salami further pointed to the resistance movement's retaliatory attack on an "Israeli" convoy in northern occupied territories on Wednesday and said Hizbullah's rapid reaction revealed its strong political will and firm determination to react to any operation against it.

The IRGC commander commented, "Special operations require complicated plans and a long time and when a retaliatory operation is conducted at such a speed, it shows the great power of the forces".

In a retaliatory operation on an "Israeli" convoy in northern occupied territories on Wednesday, Hizbullah killed two "Israeli" soldiers and destroyed at least nine military vehicles.

Following the attack, Hizbullah announced that the move was carried out in retaliation for a recent "Israeli" strike that martyred several members of the Islamic Resistance.
