On May 20, Iranian Chief of Staff Maj.- Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi told a conference that “The Iranian nation is standing for its cause, which is the full annihilation of Israel.”

The next day, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu cited this remark as further evidence of Iran's deadly intentions: “Iran's goals are clear.  It wants to annihilate Israel and is developing nuclear weapons to realize this goal.”
