Report: Iran Threatens to Kill IDF Commanders

Reprinted with permission

On January 31, 2015, the Mashregh website, which is close to Iranian security circles, threatened that, in response to Israel’s targeting of Hizbullah and Iranian operatives, Hizbullah would assassinate one of three IDF commanders: Golani Brigade Commander Ghassan Aliyan,  Home Front Command  head Maj.-Gen. Eyal Eizenberg, or Bashan Division commander Colonel Yaniv Asor. [1]


It should be noted that following the death of Jihad Mughniyah,  Mashregh and another Iranian website threatened that the sons of Israeli senior politicians, such as Benjamin Netanyahu, Ehud Olmert and Ariel Sharon, would be assassinated, as well as sons of IDF commanders.[2]
