A senior Iranian official on Sunday said that at least 10,000 Israelis would be killed in the event of an Israeli military strike on the Islamic republic of Iran.

“If the Israelis attack, Iran’s deterrent power would deal a mortal blow to them and the Israeli death toll would not be less than 10,000. Therefore, they would be stopped soon,” Mohsen Rezaei, former chief of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps was quoted by Press TV as saying.

“We don’t want war, but are fully prepared to defend our country against any strike. Of course the Zionists wouldn't dare invade Iran and only speak of war to win concessions from the next US president,” said Rezaei to Press TV.
