Expert: Russia’s Condemnation of Iran’s Anti-Israel Threats

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has condemned a top Iranian official’s threat to destroy Tel Aviv and kill Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a move that an Israeli expert sees as proof that Russia now considers Israel the “main actor” in the region.

On Sunday, Netanyahu spoke at the Munich Security Conference. following the infiltration of an Iranian drone into Israeli territory. Brandishing a piece of the downed drone, he warned Iran “do not test Israel’s resolve.”

In response, Mohsen Rezaei — a former head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which has been sanctioned by the US for terrorist activity — said on Monday, “About Netanyahu’s unwise words, I should say that if they carry out the slightest unwise move against Iran, we will level Tel Aviv to the ground” and not “give Netanyahu any opportunity to flee.”

Later on Monday, in a speech given at the Valdai International Discussion Club, Lavrov appeared to respond to Rezaee, saying, “We have stated many times that we won’t accept the statements that Israel, as a Zionist state, should be destroyed and wiped off the map. I believe this is an absolutely wrong way to advance one’s own interests.”
