Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told top Iranian military chiefs to expect “war within weeks,” at a recent war council meeting, according to israeli news outlet DebkaFile.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Western sanctions against the country have proven futile, adding there are more victories on the horizon for the Iranian nation
Western officials have repeatedly announced that the objective of anti-Iran sanctions is to wear out the Iranian nation and force the authorities of the Islamic Republic to reconsider their political calculations, Ayatollah Khamenei said on Monday.
“But they are mistaken and will never achieve this goal.”
“The Iranian nation has chosen this victorious path with insight and has made great sacrifices and forfeited the blood of its loved ones to tread this path,” the Leader added.
Referring to the upcoming parliamentary elections, Ayatollah Khamenei said the vote is a manifestation of people’s presence in the political decision making process.
Ayatollah Khamenei said Iran’s parliamentary election is also important for other Islamic Nations and that is why the US and its allies are trying to disappoint the Muslim world by disrupting the vote.
The Leader said hegemonic powers and their pawns have been making efforts to reduce the participation of Iranians in the elections, but the mass turnout of the nation will disappoint the enemy.
Ayatollah Khamenei also warned of the scourge threatening the elections.
