In response to Israel’s threats against Iran’s nuclear facilities, Mujtabi Du Al-Nour, Iranian Senior Revolutionary Guard, said that Iran could destroy Tel Aviv in six to seven minutes in response to any attack.
Israel are using the retaliatory remarks from Al-Nour as “proof” that Iran have a nuclear weapons program, and it’s likely that Netanyahu’s speech at Congress will include quotes from Al-Nour’s statement to push for military action and halt negotiations between the U.S. and Iran.
Al-Nour, who is a representative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a talk with journalists responded to Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s (Yisrael Beytenu) comments from Friday, when he said Israel should stop talking and start acting by striking the facilities said to be developing nuclear weapons.
“If the Zionists were sure that they would win in war they would already have initiated it, but they don’t have the strength to do that – so they just threatened,” blustered Al-Nour.
According to the Revolutionary Guards leader, Iran has rockets that can reach the heart of Tel Aviv within six or seven minutes, “even before the rockets of the Zionists reach us.”
