JERUSALEM - Iran's Deputy President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi warned Friday that Tehran would "cut off Israel's legs should it dare strike Syria and Lebanon."

The senior Iranian official made the comments in Damascus.

Speaking at a joint press conference with Syrian Prime Minister Muhammad Naji al-Otarii, Rahimi stressed that his country was standing by Syria with all its power.

"Syria is a strong and capable state and it has the ability to withstand any threat," he said, characterizing Israel's threats as "worthless."

"The days where Israel could run wild are long gone," he added. "Israel tasted the taste of failure in the summer of 2006 and in 2009."

Rahimi said the talks he held in Damascus were constructive and added that the two sides held intense contacts in respect to various economic and industrial issues.
