ALL OUT WAR? If Israel fires single missile at Iran… Tehran Threatens Retaliation against Israel in the Case of an Attack




Brigadier General Yadollah Javani
A senior military commander says if Israel fires even a single missile at Iranian nuclear facilities, every inch of the entity will be the target of Iran’s missiles.

Referring to recent anti-Iran rhetoric by the US and Israel, Brigadier General Yadollah Javani said on Saturday that Iran will not just repel enemy attacks and is capable of countering hostile attempts within enemy territory.

“If Israel fires a missile towards our nuclear or critical facilities, it should know that every inch of Israel including its nuclear centers are a target for our missiles [to hit] and we have this capability today,” the Iranian general said.

“Today, our enemies have reached a dead-end which they cannot escape from and this is why they say things without noticing [they are making] contradictory statements,” ISNA quoted Javani as saying.

“They threaten with military attack which they are incapable of [launching it]… if an entity repeatedly threatens with attack but does not have the capability to carry it out, its threats will be rendered inert,” he added.

The United States and Israel have repeatedly threatened Tehran with the “option” of a military strike, based on the allegation that Iran’s nuclear work may consist of a covert military agenda.

On November 6, Israeli President Shimon Peres threatened that an attack against the Islamic Republic was becoming ‘more and more likely.’

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Minister of Military Affairs Ehud Barak have also reportedly been lobbying the Israeli cabinet to approve of a military strike on Iran.

Iranian officials have promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East.

Earlier in November, Brigadier General Yahya Rahim-Safavi, who is senior military adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, dismissed Israeli threats saying any act of aggression would receive a response from Iran, Lebanon and Hamas.
