On September 22, 2022, Channel 1 (Iran) aired footage from an Iranian military parade marking the anniversary of the Iran-Iraq War. At the parade, cadets from the IRGC's military academy marched and chanted: "Death to America! We are the conquerors of Jerusalem, the destroyers of Haifa… Death to Israel! We are on our way to liberate Palestine." The parade's announcer praised the IRGC, and particularly the members of its Aerospace Force, including for being a "constant nightmare" for Zionism, and he said that the day is near when they will annihilate Israel. He also said: "We will trample America underfoot. [It] is the Great Satan [and] we will bring Satan to his knees." Later in the parade, various Iranian weapon systems were showcased, including the Khaybar Shekan ("Khaybar Crusher") ballistic missile, the Rezvan ballistic missile, the Ghadr H ballistic missile, the Emad ballistic missile, the Sejjil ballistic missile, the Ra'd-85 suicide drone, and the Arash suicide drone.

IRGC Military Academy Cadets: "Each one of our roars spells death to the government of America. Death to America! We are the conquerors of Jerusalem, the destroyers of Haifa. Death to Israel!

"We are on our way to liberate Palestine, in a war with a heathen enemy. This is like the battles of Badr and Hunayn, we are the soldiers of Hussein [bin Ali]."

Parade announcer: "The zealous men of the IRGC Aerospace Force rely on faith, efforts, and Jihad in the field of science and technology. They proceed with full force on the path of Tehrani-Moghadam and Shafizadeh, and along with their zealous General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, they have become a constant nightmare for the plundering Zionism.

"The day is not far when, with the help of God, they will annihilate Israel.

[...]

"Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! The heroes of the IRGC Aerospace Force are ready to demonstrate their strength, in front of your pure loving eyes, oh respected, dear, and proud people of Islamic Iran. We will trample America underfoot.
