The supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has claimed that Israel "will not exist after 25 years."

While in a meeting with Ramadan Abdullah Shallah yesterday (Wednesday), the secretary general of the Islamic Jihad Movement, Khamenei claimed "the Zionist entity protectors" have created a crisis in order to "alienate the Palestinian cause."

He praised the Palestinians' continued resolution and maintained that the sole manner of "saving Jerusalem" was "resistance”. To defeat "the Zionist regime," he said Palestinians and Muslims must come together in a combined effort.

Iranian officials have consistently threatened to destroy Israel, with a long history of conflict stretching back to the 1940s.
