On May 20, 2022, Channel 3 (Iran) aired footage from a gathering of IRGC and Basij forces from the Tehran Metropolitan Area. One performance at the gathering featured a song with the lyrics: "We are ready for war, tell Zion… No trace will be left of the demon... Not a single house will be left standing in Tel Aviv... The Saud clan is a mirror reflecting the scheming of the Jews [and will be] eliminated." In addition, a speaker at the event said that Haifa and Tel Aviv will be razed to the ground, and a woman in the crowd said she would give up her life for Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. Moreover, IRGC Commander-in-Chief General Hossein Salami promised the audience that they will soon pray in the courtyard of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Singer: "In a heavy battle, tell Zion... We are ready for war, tell Zion... In our attack, no trace will be left of the demon... Not a single house will be left standing in Tel Aviv... Not a single house will be left standing in Tel Aviv...

"The Saud clan is a mirror reflecting the scheming of the Jews... The day of salvation will be the day the Saud clan is eliminated; That day that Mecca will be liberated is very soon. That day that Mecca will be liberated is very soon. The Saud clan is taking its last breaths."

[...]

Speaker: "If the enemy makes a mistake, we will make it regret it. We will raze Haifa and Tel Aviv to the ground."

Woman speaker: "In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate, 'Prepare for them whatever force and steeds of war you can in order to strike fear in Allah's enemy and your enemy.' Allah akbar! I will give my life for the Leader! Death to America!"

Crowd: "Death to America!"

Woman: "Death to Israel! Oh Zahra!"

[...]

General Hossein Salami: "Soon — and maybe very soon — you will pray in the place your heart desires today. All your wishes have become true with time. Rest assured that this big wish will also come true soon, and under the leadership of the leader of the Muslims, you will pray in the courtyard of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
