Iran has once again issued a chilling threat against Israel, warning of an “obliterating” war should the Jewish state launch a full-scale attack against Hezbollah in Lebanon.

“Albeit Iran deems as psychological warfare the Zionist regime’s propaganda about intending to attack Lebanon, should it embark on full-scale military aggression, an obliterating war will ensue. All options, including the full involvement of all Resistance Fronts, are on the table,” the Iranian mission to the United Nations wrote on X.

In response, Israeli Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz fired back, warning that the Islamic Republic will be destroyed if Hezbollah does not cease its attacks.

“Iran threatens today to destroy Israel if Israel fully responds to Hezbollah attacks from Lebanon,” Katz posted on his X account on Saturday. “My response to Iran is clear: A regime that threatens destruction deserves to be destroyed.”

The current crisis along Israel’s northern border is but one flashpoint in a far reaching conflict fueled by Iran’s expansionist terror ambitions. From the Gaza Strip to Lebanon, Yemen, Syria, and Iraq, Iranian-backed terror groups have relentlessly targeted Israel and its allies, sowing chaos and claiming countless lives.

In April, Iran launched a barrage of missiles and suicide drones at Israel in retaliation for an alleged Israeli airstrike in Damascus that killed a high-ranking Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps officer. While the Iranian attack was largely thwarted by Israel and her allies’ defenses, it marked a new level of escalation in Tehran’s unchecked aggression.

Meanwhile, frustration with the regime’s prioritization of terror over domestic economic needs has been growing. Despite the dangerous risks of protesting in Iran, many citizens have bravely taken to the streets to voice grievances against Iran’s support for Hamas and Hezbollah, chanting slogans such as “Neither Gaza nor Lebanon, I’ll sacrifice my life for Iran,” according to Iran International.
