MEMRI Daily Brief No. 529

Over a month ago, MEMRI published information and an analysis comprising an early warning, titled "Signs of Possible War in September – October," by MEMRI President Yigal Carmon. It predicted the Hamas/Palestinian Islamic Jihad attack on Israel – and this prediction was all based on open sources monitored by MEMRI 24/7/365. It stated: "Lately there have been growing indications that a war against Israel may break out in September or October 2023. The trigger may be spiraling violent clashes resulting in many casualties, or the use of new weapons leading to many fatalities on the Israeli side."

In addition, MEMRI translated and published two clips from Iranian TV. One was from an Iranian TV broadcast of a military parade showcasing Iran's massive UAV and missile arsenal, as the announcer stated: "Israel will be erased from the face of the earth. Death to Israel!" He added that if Israel makes a "mistake," Tel Aviv and Haifa will be razed to the ground, and that the IRGC wants to destroy Israel and will do so soon.

A second clip from Iranian TV translated and published by MEMRI was of a speech by IRGC Gen. Mohammad Bagheri, who is the Chief of Staff of Iran's armed forces. He delivered the speech as Iranian soldiers stood in formation on a plaza emblazoned with the inscription "Israel should be erased" in Persian and in Hebrew.
