Amid speculations about the possibility of an Israeli attack against Iranian nuclear sites, Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi insists the Israeli regime is too weak to harm the Islamic Republic, IRIB News reported.
Any attempt by the "Zionist regime" to enter into a conflict with a power such as Iran will be suicidal, said Vahidi, speaking Sunday to reporters at the sideline of a ceremony, unveiling three types of sport and hunting weapons.
"Anytime the Zionist regime desires to commit suicide, it should then adopt such a decision," the top general said.
As Iran has repeatedly emphasized, the Islamic Republic will firmly respond to any foreign threat in a manner that would make the enemy think twice before engaging in any sort of aggression against the nation, the minister emphasized.
Vahidi reiterated that an attack against Iran by the Israeli regime will spell into an end to its existence.
Israeli President Shimon Peres claimed on November 6 that an attack against the Islamic Republic was getting "more and more likely," a claimed fiercely rejected by many international observers and officials.
Tehran has categorically refuted rhetorical allegations by US-led Western powers, saying that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
