The Islamic Republic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Deputy-Commander Hossein Salami speaking to Al-Alam TV said "It will be on our agenda to open a new front in the West Bank. This will go as part of a recent reality which is going to unravel gradually.”
"But of course, besides reopening the West Bank front, we will be carrying out a special course of actions as revenge for what happened,” asserted the military official, apparently in reaction to a recent Israeli helicopter strike on a Lebanese Hezbollah convoy of top military officials who were killed along with an Iranian commander while on reconnaissance mission in the Golan Heights in Syria.
Answering if the revenge will be carried out by Iranian forces or those of local resistance, Salami stated "The quality of the action cannot be stated. That is something which we are not going to announce, but it is something which is going to happen, God willing.”
He also pointed to the past assassinations of Iran's nuclear scientists which the country blames on Israel and said "You saw that at a period of time, Zionists would assassinate our nuclear scientists. But only they know where we responded to their act. We will not announce anything, they know themselves. After that, they stopped assassinating our nuclear scientists.”
