Friday, Oct 9th, 2009
An aide to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed that if the Islamic republic is attacked by the US or by Israel, Teheran would “blow up the heart” of the Jewish state, Reuters cited a report by the official Iranian news agency on Friday.
According to the report, Mojtaba Zolnour threatened that “Even if one American or Zionist missile hits our country, before the dust settles, Iranian missiles will blow up the heart of Israel.”
In March, Iran’s deputy army chief made similiar remarks, warning that his country will eliminate Israel if it attacks the Islamic republic.
“Should Israel take any action against Iran, we will eliminate Israel from the scene of the universe,” Gen. Muhammad Reza Ashtiani said at the time in Teheran.
