TEHRAN, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said Saturday that a war on Iran "will eventually happen," Press TV reported.

"War will happen but it is not clear where and when," Jafari said, warning that the attack will lead to the Israeli regime's obliteration.

Iran is ready to confront any possible strike against the country, he was quoted as saying.

The Israeli officials currently consider war as the only way to confront Iran, he said, adding that if they begin a war, it will spell their destruction and will be the end of their adventure.

He noted that the Islamic revolution is moving hastily towards achieving its objectives, saying "This is not tolerable for them and they will one day create a war situation."

The Iranian commander said that the armed forces of the Islamic republic enjoy capabilities and equipment in hardware and software fields, according to the report.

Israel, threatened to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities these days, has always been highly concerned over Iran's nuclear program, which is believed by the West to head for acquiring nuclear weapons under the cover of civilian purposes.

Iran has insisted that its nuclear program is solely for peaceful purposes, and warned that it will retaliate if it comes under attack.
