Iranian official: Israel to lose 10,000 troops if strikes Iran

A senior Iranian [2] official said that at least 10,000 Israelis [3] would be killed in the event of an Israeli military strike [4] on the Islamic republic.

“If the Israelis attack, Iran’s deterrent power would deal a mortal blow to them and the Israeli death toll would not be less than 10,000. Therefore, they would be stopped soon,” Mohsen Rezaei, former chief of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps was quoted as saying.

“We don’t want war, but are fully prepared to defend our country against any strike. Of course the Zionists wouldn’t dare invade Iran and only speak of war to win concessions from the next US president,” said Rezaei.

Rezaei further accused the West of trying to derail the “Islamic Awakening” movement by interfering in Syria [5].

“At present, the Western efforts are focused on diverting the Islamic Awakening movement towards seeking a Western-style democracy and transform it into seeking a US-style democracy by toppling the Syrian government,” he said.
