Iran warns Israel, cronies of ‘crushing’ response if nuclear sites attacked
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has warned Israel of a 'crushing' response to any attack on its nuclear and military sites.
Major General Gholam Ali Rashid, commander of Khatam al-Anbiya Central Headquarters, made the warning at a meeting with commanders of the IRGC Ground Force on Monday, Nour News reported.
The IRGC general emphasized that Iran will target the source of any aggression against its sensitive sites.
“If such threats are carried out, the Islamic Republic’s Armed Forces will immediately and decisively attack all centers, bases, routes, and spaces used to carry out the aggression,” he said.
In a veiled warning to Washington, the top general pointed out that any Israeli threat against Iranian sites will be impossible without the support of the United States.
The remarks come as Israeli minister of military affairs Benny Gantz told officials in Washington last week that he had directed the regime’s military to prepare for the possibility of a military strike on Iranian nuclear facilities.
