Iranian general warns Israel of 'destruction' if it attacks

The deputy chief of Iran's armed forces warned on Wednesday that any attack by Israel would bring "destruction" of the Jewish state and that Iran's retaliation would be felt outside the Middle East as well.


Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri stressed that the Dimona reactor in Israel was "the most accessible" target, and that "our response would not be limited to the Middle East," according to an interview given to the Iranian Arabic-language channel Al-Alam. (AFP)
