On January 21, Global National claimed: "Israel is claiming responsibility for a series of deadly airstrikes on Iranian military targets inside Syria. The pre-dawn strike which killed at least 11 people, was in response to an Iranian missile attack on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights yesterday. Today's admission is rare, Israel has a longstanding policy of avoiding public admission of involvement in Syria. The head of Iran's air force is threatening serious retaliation."
In reality, Iran’s air force chief Brig. Gen. Aziz Nasirzadeh said: "We’re ready for the decisive war that will bring about Israel’s disappearance from the earth. Our young airmen are prepared for the day when Israel will be destroyed." See also the Independent's coverage.
Calling for the de facto annihilation of 7 million Jews and the destruction of Israel cannot be whitewashed as a mere threat to seriously retaliate. The statement is tantamount to incitement to genocide and a flagrant violation of international law.
