Israeli collapse imminent as new life breathed into Palestine: Iran’s IRGC chief
The chief commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the Israeli regime's collapse is imminent as the regime faces several crises and "a new life" breathed into Palestinian resistance.
"The Zionist regime has decayed and is close to collapse," Major General Hossein Salami said on Friday while addressing the International Quds Day rallies in Isfahan, central Iran.
"The first sign of this regime's decline is that there is no established political system inside the regime," he maintained.
Describing Arab normalization with Israeli as a "source of shame", Salami said those states that have done so "regret" the decision as they understood that they "cannot rely on a support that has been eaten from inside by termites ... and will soon break down."
He was referring to the US-brokered Abraham Accords, according to which the Israeli regime normalized diplomatic relations with United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco in 2020.
The regime is facing several major crises, including isolation in foreign policy, internal instability, domestic protests, and inefficient government, stressed the Iranian commander.
"A new life has been breathed into the Palestinian movement," he highlighted.
"Operations are carried out in the West Bank and Tel Aviv and a regime that has encircled itself with walls like an appalling garrison and is equipped with the most modern security systems that cannot prevent delivery of arms to West Bank and operations of Palestinian fighters."
International Quds Day is among the legacies of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who is revered as a spiritual leader by Muslims across the world. Back in 1979, shortly after leading an Islamic Revolution which toppled the US-backed Shah of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini named the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan the Quds Day.
This year's Quds Day rallies found more significance as the occupation desecrated al-Aqsa Mosque by attacking peaceful pilgrims during the blessed month of Ramadan amid the regime's Judaization plans.
