Israel is too weak to threaten Iran: Hosseini
Israel is by no means in a position to threaten Iran, Foreign Ministry spokesman, Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said on Monday, reported Irna.
He made the remarks at his weekly press conference while commenting on Israeli boast of air show in the Mediterranean and scenario of air strike on Iran.
"It is a hollow slogan and they do so whenever they want to transfer their internal crisis out of the regime structure," Hosseini said recalling the humiliating defeat of Tel Aviv in its 33-day war in Lebanon.
Commenting on Israeli air force exercise, the spokesman said the move was a way through which Israel wanted to get rid of its several domestic crises and distract public opinion.
"Tel Aviv regime needs such moves to repair humiliated spirit of Israeli officials after being defeated by forces of the Lebanese resistance movement in summer 2006 (July-August)," Hosseini stressed.
