Visiting Haifa base, Netanyahu warns Iran of Israel's long missile ranges

Hezbollah supporters hold images of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenai during celebrations marking the 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution in Beirut on Fe

"We have not asked and will not ask for permission to develop different types of missiles and will continue our path and our military power", President Hassan Rouhani said.

Journalist Mikey Kay recalled in this vein that Bolton has spoken at least eight times at rallies organised by MEK (Mojahedin-e Khalq), an Iranian dissident group which calls for regime change in Iran and is known to pay up to $50,000 per speech.

Chants of "Death to Israel" and "Death to Britain" followed, and demonstrators burned USA and Israeli flags.

An Iranian girl poses with a potrait of the country's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei with signs reading "Down with USA" and "Down with Israel" during a ceremony celebrating the 40th anniversary of Islamic Revolution by the capital Tehran's Azadi (Freedom) tower in the square of the same name on February 11, 2019.

On Feb. 11 that year, Iran's military stood down after days of street battles, allowing the revolutionaries to sweep across the country while the government of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi resigned. "But it does not mean we support corruption of some officials and their betrayal of the oppressed people".

This year's anniversary comes as Iran deals with the aftermath of President Trump's decision in May to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal and restore tough US sanctions.

In a speech at Tehran's Azadi square, President Hassan Rouhani dismissed USA efforts to isolate Iran, saying US sanctions could not break the Islamic Republic.

Iranian political and military officials have also attended the rallies along with other people to rejoice at the auspicious ceremony.

He said, "We will not let America become victorious.Iranian people have and will have some economic difficulties but we will overcome the problems by helping each other".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu termed the navy's strength "impressive", a day after he said he was unimpressed by Iran's threats against Israel.

"Israel acts "constantly" to prevent Iran and its proxies from entrenching themselves on Israel's northern border and in the region", Netanyahu said.

"If this regime makes the awful mistake and tries to destroy Tel Aviv or Haifa, it won't be successful and it will be the last anniversary of their revolution they will ever celebrate". "They would do well to take that into account".

In Iran, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) is the branch of the military responsible for upholding the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Washington and the Arab world have viewed Iran with great suspicion since the Islamic Revolution, fearing Khomeini's radical ideology would inspire militants across the Middle East.
