TEHRAN, June 24 (UPI) -- A senior Iranian military general warned Israel against attacking the Islamic Republic saying it will "mark the end of its existence."

Iranian Army deputy chief of staff Brig. Gen. Mostafa Izadi warned Israel against waging military strikes on Iran's uranium enrichment sites.

"If the Zionist regime [of Israel] tries to take any action against us, it will mark the end of its existence and there is no doubt that they are unable to harm the [Islamic] Revolution and the establishment in any way," the government-backed Press TV quoted him saying Saturday.

"The existence of numerous [Iranian] islands in the Persian Gulf has provided us with great capabilities, making the Islamic Republic the superior defense power in the region," he said.

Similar sentiments were echoed by Ali-Reza Tangisiri, the deputy commander of the country's Revolutionary Guards, who said "taking into consideration all aspects of the enemy's military might, if we say we have the power and skill to counter major threats it is not a mere claim it is a reality based on reality."
