Israel warns Iran this could be last anniversary

Hezbollah supporters hold images of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenai during celebrations marking the 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution in Beirut on Fe

Netanyahu's comments came in response to a threat made by Yadollah Javani, the Guard's deputy head for political affairs, who said at a rally celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution that the United States "does not have the courage to shoot a single bullet at us despite all its defensive and military assets".

Along with the chants "Death to America" and banners bearing slogans calling for "Death to Israel", Monday's marches were also a backdrop to the military's display of Iranian-made missiles, which authorities showcase every year during anniversary celebrations. "The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future", Trump posted on Twitter in both English and Farsi.

This year's celebrations come amid heightened tensions with the United States, which last year withdrew from the 2015 nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers and reimposed tough sanctions on the Iranian economy. "But it does not mean we support corruption of some officials and their betrayal of the oppressed people".

Last year, Iran cracked down on protests over poor living standards that posed the most serious challenge to its clerical elite since a 2009 uprising over disputed elections.

Prices of basic foodstuffs, particularly meat, have soared since President Donald Trump withdrew Washington from the 2015 nuclear deal past year and reimposed economic sanctions.

Iranians march towards Azadi (Freedom) Square during a ceremony celebrating the 40th anniversary of Islamic Revolution in the capital Tehran on February 11, 2019.

But despite the official festivities today's Islamic republic faces acute economic challenges as it struggles with a mix of domestic hardships and U.S. sanctions. But he remained defiant as Iranians recalled the end of a monarch who catered to the rich and unleashed secret police on dissenters. "With the assistance and the help of one another. we will be victorious in the face of America". "But if they attack us, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground", Javani told the state news agency IRNA.

"If this regime makes the awful mistake and tries to destroy Tel Aviv or Haifa, it won't be successful and it will be the last anniversary of their revolution they will ever celebrate".

"I don't ignore the threats from the Iranian regime, but I'm also not intimidated by them", Netanyahu said in a Hebrew-language video. "They would do well to take that into account".

Regional power Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries have viewed Iran with great suspicion since the Islamic Revolution swept the Shah from power, fearing Khomeini would inspire Islamic militants across the region.

"The world saw when Iran chose to help people of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine and Yemen, they achieved victory".

A senior commander in Iran's Revolutionary Guards said Tehran would not withdraw forces from the region, dismissing US calls for Iranian clout to be curbed.
