Iranian fighters are a few kilometres away from Israel in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf said yesterday.

"Israel was supposed to be able to approach our front lines in Iraq's Jalawla, one kilometre away from our borders… But today it fears our presence in the Golan"  Ghalibaf said during a ceremony commemorating the Iran-Iraq war.

"Even whoever adopts regressive Western ideas at home [in Iran] must understand that honour and dignity in this world and the hereafter can only come through leaning on Islam and the people, exerting efforts and hard work, and adhering to the culture of altruism and martyrdom," he added.
