Israel warns Iran this could be last anniversary

AFP  |  Jerusalem 

has warned that this year could be the last time it celebrates if it attacks

"I do not ignore the threats of the Iranian regime but neither am I intimidated by them," said Monday in a statement and video issued by his office as celebrated

"If this regime makes the awful mistake of trying to destroy and Haifa, it will not succeed," the Israeli leader said.

"However, this would be the last that they celebrate. They should take this into account," said in a warning to his country's archfoe.

Celebrations culminated in on Monday for the February 1-11 period in 1979 when the late Ayatollah returned from exile and ousted the pro-Western shah.
