In a speech that aired on Ofogh TV (Iran) on November 7, 2018, IRGC Deputy Commander Hossein Salami said that there are Lebanese, Iraqis, Afghanis, Pakistanis, Iranians, and Yemenis in Syria, and that the "united Islamic army… necessary to wipe out the wrongdoers" has been formed. He said that the Zionists know that any new war they start would not just be in Lebanon and that it would lead to Israel's annihilation. Salami further said that the powerbase of the Revolution has expanded from the eastern Mediterranean to the north of the Red Sea, and that the Islamic world is being formed "as a basis for a new civilization." He added: "The scope of our missile ability has grown… Obviously, this is not our only capability, but it is the one that our enemy fears."

Following are excerpts:


Hossein Salami: In Syria today, the Israelis hear the languages of the Lebanese, the Iraqis, the Afghans, the Pakistanis, the Iranians, the Yemenis, and others. In other words, the united Islamic army – the powerful international Islamic corps which is necessary in order to wipe out the wrongdoers – has been formed. Today, the Zionists know that in any war they start, Lebanon will not be the only battlefront. They know that a new war would lead to their annihilation. We have expanded the power base of the Revolution and it now extends from the eastern Mediterranean to the north of the Red Sea. This means that the world of Islam is being formed as a basis for a new civilization.




The scope of our missile ability has grown in every range and in high accuracy. Obviously, this is not our only capability, but it is the one our enemy fears.
