Iran's relations with both states have long been strained, but the US recently intensified its pressure on Tehran, tightening economic sanctions against it and deploying additional troops and equipment to the Middle East region, sparking concerns of a possible military conflict, ONAreports citing Sputnik.

During a meeting with students Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reassured the country's youth that they will see the "demise" of the Islamic Republic's enemies.

"You young people should be assured that you will witness the demise of the enemies of humanity, meaning the degenerate American civilisation, and the demise of Israel", he said.
