Iranian military commanders on Saturday continued to issue warnings and threats to Israel, as "Sacred Defense Week" began. An Israeli war on Iran "will eventually happen" but the Jewish state will subsequently be destroyed, Iran's Revolutionary Guard, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said in comments published Saturday, AFP reported.
"War will happen but it is not certain where and when," Iranian news agencies ISNA and Fars quoted him as saying.
"The shameful and cancerous tumor that is Israel is seeking war against us, but it is not known when that war will happen. They now consider war as the only way to confront us, but they are so stupid that their (US) masters should stop them,"Jafari said, according to AFP. "If they begin (aggression), it will spell their destruction and will be the end of the story."
