At this stage I assume it is rethoric, to keep the moral of the troops high...
Iran has no major airforce that would be a match for IDF -
So the threat at this stage could -potentially- open the door for missile-attacks from Iranian soil.
But again-they might look a little crazy in the eyes of western observers-but they are far from being fools.Tehran knows very well about israeli strike-capabilities. Also-this monday there will be a visit of Joschka Fischer,Germany's former foreign secretary ,to Iran.he will discuss the situation with the Office for strategic planing and I doubt any major steps that would open a Panora's Box will unfold that soon.
