Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi says Israel is too weak to launch a war against Iran.
“They (Israelis) themselves have stressed on the fact that they could not enter into a war with Iran,” Vahidi told reporters in northeastern city of Orumieh on Wednesday.
He added “the Zionist regime is too weak to launch a war against Iran.”
Vahidi warned that Tel Aviv will face immediate retaliation, if it dares to launch an attack on Iran.
“If the move is carried out (by Israel), Iran’s reaction may be so that there remain nothing of the regime,” ISNA news agency quoted the official as saying.
Israel has not rejected the possibility of a war to halt the Iranian civilian nuclear program.
On Monday, Mojtaba Zolnour, the acting representative of the Leader in the Islamic Revolution’s Guards Corps (IRGC), also made similar remarks.
“They know that, if they try their luck and lob a single missile towards Iran, before the dust clears here, the dust of our missiles will rise from the heart of Tel Aviv,” Zolnour emphasized.
