“The IRGC will remain steadfast for the collapse of the Zionist regime of Israel through its continued support for the Lebanese and Palestinian combatants, but this time it supports will be on a scale larger than its supports during the 33-day and 51-day wars against the Israeli army,” General Jafari said in a message released on the occasion of the martyrdom of an IRGC commander, Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi, who was killed in an attack by an Israeli military helicopter in the Golan Heights on Sunday.
The Iranian top commander said resistance groups in the region will soon give a crushing response to Israel’s Sunday raid.
“The Zionists must wait for the devastating thunderbolts of the anti-Israel resistance groups in the region,” the Iranian commander warned.
On Sunday, an Israeli helicopter struk Quneitra in Syria’s Golan Heights, killing General Allahdadi as well as the son of slain Hezbollah top commander Imad Mughniyeh and 5 others.
On Monday, the Lebanese Resistance Movement Hezbollah issued a statement confirming the strike, saying its forces had been martyred during an inspection mission in the Syrian town of Quneitra.
Hezbollah stressed that it would give a crushing and rigid response to the Israeli forces’ Sunday attack.
“The attack against six Hezbollah members will have a painful and unexpected response,” the Hezbollah sources said.
