Saudi Arabia will be toppled soon, senior Iranian General says

Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari quoted by Tasnim news agency said “The traitor Saudi Arabia is following the path of Israel.”
“Saudi Arabia is bombarding this country without any coordination with international bodies,” Gen. Jafari said during a speech.
He also added added “We can no longer stay silent.”
This comes as the Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, publicly attacked Saudi Arabia for the first time in a speech recently.
Khamenei directly named Saudi Arabia and said it was as bad as Israel.
Over 1,000 people have been killed since Saudi Arabia started airstrikes targeting the Houthi rebels who swept through Yemen taking advantage of years of infighting among Sunni leaders.
Saudi in coalition with Arab countries is trying to push the Houthis back who are financially supported by Iran, a regional rival to the Kingdom.
