The US decision to recognize al-Quds as the capital of the illegal Zionist entity would spark off a major Intifada (uprising) and result in auspicious events, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces said.
According to Tasnim News Agency, addressing a conference in Tehran on Monday, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri described the US president’s move to declare Quds capital of the Israeli regime as the factor triggering a major Intifada in Palestine.
“This wrong decision (by US President Donald Trump) will initiate auspicious events,” the general added.
Condemning the Zionist regime for its policy of aggression and killing children during its short life, the top general said even Washington’s allies cannot accept such a controversial decision about the city of Quds.
Pointing to the Zionist regime’s humiliating defeats in the 22-Day and 33-Day wars, Major General Baqeri said Zionist entity suffered defeats from guerilla groups in the region, not even from regional powers.
On Israel’s support for terrorist groups in the region, the commander said the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group is currently holding only a small area with the help of Israel, saying that zone will also come under attack and recaptured at an appropriate time.
The Zionist regime is the root cause of regional problems and the Muslim people of the region cannot tolerate such a “cancerous tumor,” he concluded.
