Iranian general threatens retaliation against Israeli nuclear sites
An Iranian general Saturday threatened retaliation against Israel if any of its nuclear or security sites are attacked, dpa reported.
"If Israeli missiles hit one of our nuclear facilities or other vital centres, then they should know that any part of Israeli territory would be target of our missiles, including their nuclear sites," General Yadollah Javani of the Revolutionary Guards told ISNA news agency.
"They (Israel) know that we have the capability to do so."
Javani, the former head of the military's political department, was referring to mounting speculation that Israel would strike Iran's nuclear facilities after the International Atomic Energy Agency said Tehran had tested designs used to make nuclear warheads.
Iranian political and military officials have warned Israel that it would face retaliation from Shahab-3 missiles that can reach any part of the Jewish state.
Iranian volunteers affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards have held several gatherings in recent days and vowed a harsh reply to any military attacks on nuclear sites.
