Intelligence agencies of the United States and Israel are responsible for causing political unrest in the Middle East, said top Iranian Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
If the Zionist regime continues to follow its aggressive policies in the Israeli-occupied territories, Safavi said that Hezbollah has 80,000 missiles that it can use against Israel.
Speaking about his country's security, the Major General boasted Iran is powerful enough militarily and therefore it can effectively defend itself against possible aggressors.
"If Iran is attacked, we will raze Tel-Aviv and Haifa to the ground. Iran and Hezbollah has enough potential to counter Zionist aggression," the General said, speaking on TV Wednesday night, cited by IRNA.
Safavi also said that Iran urges its regional neighbors to work collectively on security issues in the Middle East.
