Who is Israel to threaten us?" Rouhani said, addressing a number of veterans of the 8-year Iraqi-imposed war against Iran (1980-1988) in Tehran on Tuesday night.
He said the reason why the Zionist regime cannot pose a real threat and take military action against Iran is the country's record of brave resistance during the Iraqi-imposed war.
"They know that if something happens, the people of the Islamic Iran will resist more sincerely, more bravely and more powerfully," Rouhani underlined.
In similar remarks, a senior Iranian military commander dismissed enemies' warmongering rhetoric against Iran as unworthy, saying that the Iranian Armed Forces are capable of razing Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground as stated by the Supreme Leader in March.
Speaking to reporters, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Logistics and Industrial Research General Mohammad Hejazi pointed to the remarks made by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei about Tehran's crushing response to the US and Israel's possible hostile moves, and noted that the Leader is "well aware" of the Iranian Armed Forces' capability.
"We enjoy the needed level of preparedness to put this statement (razing Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground) into action in the shortest time possible if the enemy makes a foolish move," Hejazi underlined.
Addressing a large and fervent congregation of the Iranian people in the country's Northeastern holy city of Mashhad on March 21, Ayatollah Khamenei deplored Israel's war rhetoric against Iran, and warned that any hostile move by the Zionist regime against the Islamic Republic would be reciprocated with a destructive response.
Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the recent warmongering statements by Israeli officials and warned Tel Aviv against any wrongdoing against the Islamic Republic of Iran.
"Israel's leaders sometimes threaten Iran, but they know that if they do a damn thing, the Islamic Republic will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground," Ayatollah Khamenei stressed
