After the victory of the forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad and his Iranian allies against the last bastion of rebels in Aleppo, the deputy commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Gen. Hossein Salami, sent a threatening message to Israel

"After the victory of Hezbollah in Aleppo, it will not hesitate to do similarly to the cities of Israel.” Hezbollah "is ready to stage battles in Tel Aviv, Acre, Nahariya and other cities," he warned.

Salami’s remarks were broadcast on Iranian media and were part of an interview with the Hezbollah affiliated channel Al Mayadeen. "Hezbollah has now become an influential regional power on par with the United States, Saudi Arabia, and the Zionist entity," he continued. “On the other side stand the supporters of Syria and Hezbollah."

In July, Salami stated that there are tens of thousands of missiles in Lebanon ready to strike Israel.
