Iran Tells Israel: ‘Our Fingers Are on the Trigger, Missiles Are Ready to Launch’

(Newsweek) The second-in-command of Iran’s most elite force has warned Israel against moves that further threaten Tehran’s interest in the region, especially Syria, where the West and its allies have targeted Syrian government positions.

Brigadier General Hossein Salami, commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Guards, said Friday that a war between Iran and Israel would lead to the latter’s total annihilation. Israeli jets have targeted the positions of Iran and its allies in Syria, but Salami said his country was now ready to retaliate at any moment.

“Our fingers are on the trigger and the missiles are ready to launch, at any moment that the enemy wants to start something against us, we will launch,” Salami told a crowd gathered to commemorate the birth of revered Imam Hussein, according to Iran’s semi-official Mehr News Agency.

“We have learned methods of overcoming our enemies,” he added. “We can target our enemies’ vital interests wherever we want.”

    Iran can breath all the threats they want against Israel, but it won’t change the fact that prophecy will come true. Gods word already tells us Iran’s fate for hating Israel and persecuting them, God Himself is against them and He will fight for Israel Himself. The only way not to be under that, is to come to faith in Jesus Christ. Abba Father, I ask You to raise up more laborers in Iran to proclaim the gospel message. I hope that they will come to You and accept your gift of grace through faith in Jesus Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. Open their eyes, so that they can understand their sin and their need for redemption. Have mercy on them and send them messengers to proclaim the peace You are offering them, if they will just accept it. Let those who are Yours and who are there, shine their lights brightly to bring glory to Your Name. Help them as they proclaim Your truth. I ask this in the Name of Your beloved Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. AMEN
