Iran: “We Will Rearm the West Bank”

Iran vowed on Monday to “accelerate” its rearming of PA Arabs in Judea and Samaria, one day after it claimed that it shot down an Israeli spy drone over its airspace. “We will accelerate the arming of the West Bank and we reserve the right to give any response,” said General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh in a statement on Sepah News, the official website of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

Hajizadeh, the elite unit’s commander of aerial forces, issued the statement in response to the alleged violation of Iranian airspace by the drone, which Iran claims it shot down near its Natanz nuclear site. Following the incident, the Guards said that the drone was an Israeli-made Hermes 450, a model whose flight range would have allowed it to reach the area. Video of the wreckage was broadcast on Iranian television, and the Foreign Ministry condemned what it saw as a “flagrant violation” of its territorial integrity.

“The Armed Forces, including the IRGC and the Army, are fully prepared to trace and intercept [hostile flying objects] and if such moves are repeated, the aggressors will receive our crushing response,” warned Hajizadeh in Monday’s statement. “We will accelerate the arming of the West Bank, and we think we are entitled to give any response [to the recent aggression] which we deem appropriate,” he added.

Iran has long been seen as a major weapons supplier to Hamas. Numerous medium- and long-range rockets from Syria and Iran have found their way into Gaza, where the terror group has launched some them at Israeli civilians. These include Iranian-made Fajr rockets, as well as several dozen Syrian-produced M-302 rockets, based on Iranian technology, which have the range to strike deep inside Israel. In July one such rocket flew over 100 kilometers to impact in Hadera, a town near the northern city of Haifa, during Hamas’s latest terror war against Israel.

Earlier this year Israeli forces intercepted the Klos C, a vessel from Iran carrying a shipment of 40 M-302 rockets, as well as 141 mortars and some 400,000 rounds of assault rifle ammunition, that it believed was headed for Gaza.

    I think Syria is even a greater threat……….Isis is the most menacing I have seen; cosas habrais de ver Sancho

  3. Nice Guy says:

    so Israel should advertise that Iranian statement…which gives Israel reason to NOT allow unchecked stuff into GAZA…cause Iran wants to send weapons to gaza and if Gaza wants peace why do they rearm…arms are to kills Jews only! Israel should not trade land for WAR….there is NO peace possible so its only land for WAR….Israel must declare all lands that Israel has right now are forever Israels and will not be negotiated/nor given away nor given up….no more forcing Jews out of their homes and giving the land to our enemies! it has not did not and will not ever bring peace….only Israel being strong can prevent war…and preventing war is the closest thing to having Peace that Israel can ever have….because PEACE meaning FRIENDSHIP is impossible cause the Arabs hate with all their hearts and minds and all their korans the Jews….the Koran says see the jew behind the tree…go kill them! PERIOD!

  4. Nice Guy says:

    Just like with Russia…we have NO war…but we really don't have PEACE with Russia or China …we have NO war….and with Japan we have peace…even though we were at war with them WWII we now have real peace with Japan while only NO war/quiet you don't bother me and I wont bother you relationship. Which is fine…so long as you stay strong. We can see Russia starting to spread its armies out as we have started the whitehouse policy of disarming (destroy most of our nuclear weapons and ships and planes and disband half of our armed forces and arm our enemies with hitech weapons. We left billions of dollars of tanks and armored Humvees and tank missiles etc in Iraq when we suddenly left and Isis and Hamas took them for free and from time to time we TRAIN Palestinians and hamas(who are all PALESTINIANS) and Syrians and alfganistan terrorists etc….in using weapons, and even how to use hitech sniper rifles to keep the peace…that even sounds stupid and useless…sniper rifles are used to kill usa and Israeli people….and that is all !!! and it has been done many times over the years….that is soooooooooo stupid….its like teaching Mexicans who drink, how to drive cars and how to break in and steal cars….claiming that will help them get nicer jobs! that is also stupid….but we did give bail to an illegal Mexican convicted of several drunk driving arrests and he while out on bail killed that jewish couple and their onborn baby.

    the USA does not have to go to war….nor use ground troops…just stop giving out money and food and supplies to our enemies…take over the oil wells in the middle east…call it a humanitarian gesture cause the dictators and KINGS of the arab countries do not properly feed their poor…and they use the money to pay train supply give salaries to terrorists….which is an ACT OF WAR! just like when the FBI had a huge file on the Saudi prince who lives in FLORIDA mansion show housed for year, gave salaries too, gave free plane flying lessons to, and instructed them as to what to do….to the 19 terrorists who blew up the world trade center, and blew up part of the pentagon and tried to blow up the white house (but the passengers committed suicide and made the plane crash when they found out the plane was going to hit the white house!….this act of war….gives us the right to take over Saudi oil fields and control where the money goes NONE to pay for terrorism not salaries not supplies not training…and none to pay for education that teaches children to hate USA and JEWS and ISRAEL (oh do they teach hatred!!!) and if we do this…the wars will stop….oh we would sell to oil to USA citizens for gas/diesel/plane and house fuel…for 69 cents a gallon which would lessen USA debt and increase USA economy and also with less war….and less terrorism we would save hundreds of billions of dollars that we waste on all that war. and we should give up trying to impose democratic govts on arab nations…they do not want and never will have those! instead control the oil and there will be no wars, keep hitech weapons and planes and nuclear bombs out of arab hands and you wll see peace!
