Vahidi told IRNA on Thursday “The defense capability of the Islamic Iran against threats by the Zionist regime has been developed to an extent that it will be able to wipe the Israeli regime off the scene.”
He added that the regime is faced with numerous problems and is making efforts to cover up its domestic woes through the war rhetoric.
The minister noted that Iran would unveil new indigenous military equipment in an attempt to display only part of its defense capabilities.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in the defense sector and gained self-sufficiency in essential military hardware and defense systems.
The Zionist regime’s threats against Iran are based on unfounded claims that the nuclear activities of the Islamic Republic have been diverted to the acquisition of military nuclear capability.
