Tehran, July 21: Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to destroy the US and Israel and send them to the “morgue” if Iran is put on the defensive. “Resistance will continue until Iran sends its enemies to the morgue,” Ahmadinejad said on his website.
The president was making a reference to the US and Israel, who he said were “on the verge of collapse and gasping for their last breath”.
A report said Ahmadinejad may have been reacting to news from Iranian state media that Tehran brought down a US drone flying near its Fordo nuclear enrichment plant in Qom province.
State-run Press TV, however, did not elaborate on when the incident happened. US officials have said there were unaware that an American unmanned aircraft was downed.
