We can destroy Israel in ‘less than 8 minutes’: Iranian commander

Netanyahu-obamanews544sf5f54s54sfA senior Iranian military commander has claimed that the Islamic Republic is capable of destroying Israel in under eight minutes, the latest of a long series of threats against what it deems as the “Zionist regime.”
“If the Supreme Leader’s orders [are] to be executed, with the abilities and the equipment at our disposal, we will raze the Zionist regime in less than eight minutes,” said Ahmad Karimpour, a senior adviser to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ elite unit al-Quds Force.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the Islamic Republic’s head of state and most powerful figure, has repeatedly threatened to annihilate the Jewish state. In September, the 76-year-old leader suggested Israel would not exist in 25 years’ time.
