The threat against Israeli and Jewish targets in North America is on the rise, ABC news reported Friday, after the Iranian regime vocalized its intention to aid in the fight against the "Zionist regime."

Guarded and "soft sites," such as synagogues, community centers and schools, are the primary targets, a letter circulated by the Consul General for Mid-Atlantic States and obtained by ABC news claimed.

"We predict that the threat on our sites around the world will increase," the letter stated.

The report came after Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamanei said on Friday he had "no fear of saying that we will back and help any nation or group that wants to confront and fight against the Zionist regime (Israel)."
