The statement comes as the United States reaffirmed its commitment to preventing Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

According to 'The Telegraph', General Mohamed Ali Jafari, chief of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard, predicted that "war will happen" with the Jewish State.

"The shameful and cancerous tumour, that is Israel, is seeking war against us, but it is not known when that war will happen. They now consider war as the only way to confront us, but they are so stupid that their (US) masters should stop them," he said, speaking at a military exhibition in Tehran.

"If they begin, it will spell their destruction and will be the end of the story, even if they act rationally, this incident will happen," he added, noting that the Islamic revolution is "moving rapidly towards its goals and they (Israel) cannot tolerate this".
