Israel's plans to take out Iran's nuclear capabilities may have been set back because of the recent major earthquake. Or, on second thought, they may be accelerated. Hard to say. But one thing is for certain, the threats and the counter-threats are not just bluster...they are very real
Iranian DM delivers strong warning to Israel
Iran's Minister of Defense and the Armed Forces Logistics rear admiral Ali Shamkhani said on Wednesday said that Iran would give strong response if Israel ventures to attack Iranian nuclear installations.
Asked whether Iran will use Shahab- 3long range missile if Israel ventures to attack Iran, the defense minister said that Shahab- 3is "one" of the weapons, IRIB website reported.
"We will strike Israel with all weapons at our disposal, if the Zionist regime ventures to do so." "Israel is a 'fragile glass garrison'. The Zionist leaders are cherishing the dream of a rule over the globe," he said.
Shamkhani noted that Israel's Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz's statement proved that the "Zionist regime" is an evil entity.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran will strongly deal with the action against its national territory. The Israeli threat emanates from its evil literature. It is too coward to threaten Iran," Shamkhani said.
Asked about Al-Qaeda threats against Iran, Shamkhani said, "I heard it from the press. We don't have any problem in controlling the situation." (Albawaba.com)
