Official: No enemy dares to attack Iran
An Iranian intelligence official says the enemies of the Islamic Republic do not dare to attack the country as it enjoys high military capabilities.
"Today ... the Islamic Republic of Iran's military strength is not only the greatest power in the Middle East but it is also one of the global super powers and the enemies are unable to invade it," Fars news agency quoted Iran's Deputy Intelligence Minister Majid Alavi as saying on Thursday.
No one can confront Iran's military power, he said, adding that "the military case against Iran has been completely closed."
The development comes as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu complained on Sunday, while on a regular US tour, that the US-led sanctions against Iran has failed, again calling for military measures against the Islamic Republic to force a freeze of its nuclear program, Press TV reported.
Netanyahu insisted that a credible threat of military action is the only way to ensure that Iran will rethink its nuclear program.
The Israeli regime, widely believed to be the Middle East's only possessor of nuclear warheads, has repeatedly threatened to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities, claiming that the country intends to produce weapons.
Iran has fiercely rejected the allegation as entirely fictitious, maintaining that its nuclear work is solely for peaceful purposes, a statement that has been repeatedly verified by inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
In its numerous reports on Iran's nuclear work, the IAEA has confirmed non-diversion of the country's nuclear program.
Iranian officials have repeatedly warned that any military action on the country's soil would prompt a severe and immediate reaction from Iran that would not be limited to the region.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Wednesday that if all the world's powers gather together and unite their forces, they still cannot threaten Iran.
"Therefore, now that Iran is a great power, even if the enemies consolidate all their might they will still not dare threaten the Iranian nation," he said.
