Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps commander Hossein Salami says that Israel is undergoing a political collapse as the government announced that it will dissolve parliament and call fresh elections.

The US, meanwhile, is trying to extract itself from the region without losing face, Salami claims.

“If you follow the news, you will see that the Zionist regime is in political collapse,” Salami said at a military ceremony in Tehran, the semi-official Fars news service report. “And the United States seeks a dignified escape from the Islamic world.”

Iran’s enemies are “helpless, incapable and hopeless in pursuing their goals,” he says.

Salami adds that Iran is becoming stronger and “in the near future, we will be among the world powers,” the Tasnim news service reported.
