Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps quotes Qur’an in threat to blow up Israel’s nuclear facility



“Then on the day, we will deal you the fiercest blow. We will surely inflict punishment.” (Qur’an 44:16)

“Iran threatens nuclear explosion in Israel’s Dimona facility,” by Benjamin Weinthal, Jerusalem Post, December 26, 2021:

A Twitter account run by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on Friday threatened to blow up the city of Dimona in the Negev desert, where a nuclear facility is located.

The IRGC account, with its 12,100 followers, posted a video showing multiple explosions in a desert. “Then on the day, we [God] will deal you the fiercest blow. We will surely inflict punishment,” the IRGC wrote in Arabic, citing a quote from the Koran, adding the hashtag “Dimona.” The video is post-dated to Friday.

The account provides a link to the IRGC’s Telegram account, with its 376,084 subscribers. Both the IRGC Twitter account and Telegram account show the IRGC logo—an arm raised while clutching a rifle.

The IRGC Arabic account only follows the Farsi language Twitter account of the Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, as well as a backup account for IRGC Arabic.

A December 13 tweet from the IRGC account reads: “In the event of foolishness on the part of the Zionist regime, the Islamic Republic of Iran is no longer ready to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa, but to liberate holy Quds. If the security of the holy land of Iran is compromised, no one will taste the moment of security, whether those who are at 1,000 km or at 10,000 km.“

Quds is the Arabic name for the capital of Israel, Jerusalem….

In late November, the spokesman for the Islamic Republic of Iran’s armed forces, Brig.-Gen. Abolfazl Shekarchi, urged the total elimination of the Jewish state during an interview with an Iranian regime-controlled media outlet.

“We will not back off from the annihilation of Israel, even one millimeter. We want to destroy Zionism in the world,” Shekarchi told the Iranian Students News Agency.

On December 15 the Tehran Times wrote on its front page “One wrong move,” with military targets listed within Israel
