Tehran - Iranian media reported Monday that President Hassan Rouhani requested to remove the words “Death to Israel” from the ballistic missiles belonging to his country.

According to the report, Rouhani sent a letter to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei requesting to remove the print from the rockets.

Rouhani’s demand came after Khamenei himself used the line “Death to Israel,” a slogan that was written on the missiles used in the last drills run by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

Rouhani condemned the slogan at the time and has now requested from the Supreme Leader that the slogan be removed from all remaining missiles.

Experts on Iranian affairs explained that Rouhani fully understands the influence of the Israel lobby on decisions related to Israel in the European Union and the United States and is concerned that the slogan “Death to Israel” that is written on the missiles will work against the agenda he is trying to promote in his speeches, one of peace and stability in the Middle East.

In March, the Revolutionary Guard fired two Qadr missiles from northern Iran which hit targets in the southeast of the country 1,400 kms (870 miles) away, Iranian agencies said. The nearest point in Iran is around 1,000 km from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

“The reason we designed our missiles with a range of 2000 km is to be able to hit our enemy the Zionist regime from a safe distance,” Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by the ISNA agency at the time.
