A senior Iranian army commander last week assessed that Israel would be destroyed sometime in the next 10 years as a result of further Islamic revolutions in the region.

Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Reza Naqdi (pictured) told a gathering of students near Tehran that their own nation’s Islamic Revolution had succeeded in ejecting the US from Iran, repulsing Saddam Hussein and forcing an American withdrawal from Lebanon.

“Considering these achievements, the liberation of Palestine [sic] by the Islamic Revolution is not unlikely at all,” he stated in remarks carried by Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency.

Earlier in the month, Gen. Naqdi predicted that the US itself would only last another 20 years, and that it’s collapse had been accelerated by the election of Donald Trump as president.

“According to the analysis made by the behind-the-stage and shadow decision-makers of the establishment in the US, the United States will collapse in 2035 and I think that it is an optimistic analysis as this will take place much earlier,” the general said.
