Iran has accused Israel of planning to start a new war this summer, according to the Fars news agency.

The Islamic Republic’s Chief of Staff, General Hassan Fayrouz Abadi was quoted on Saturday as saying “Zionists and the Quds (Jerusalem) occupying regime intend to exercise a suicidal plan next summer.” He charged the U.S. and Israel with planning a “suicidal attack…which would start from the occupied Palestinian lands.”

Abadi added that the plan was designed to “prevent the withdrawal of the U.S. troops from Iraq and the region and…will post a danger primarily to Lebanon, Syria, Egypt and Jordan and then Saudi Arabia and all other countries in the region.”
