Iran certain Israel will not attack nuke sites
Iran said Tuesday it is unshaken by speculation that Israel could carry out pre-emptive military strikes against its nuclear facilities, saying such an attack would inflict little damage.
"I do not believe such threats are serious, since Israel is aware that it is not the facilities and buildings that matter, but the technical know-how and scientific achievements," foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi was quoted as saying by IRNA news agency.
"Logically speaking, such an attack can be ruled out. But practically, too, Israel knows that Iran's power will not diminish with such an attack, and therefore such bullying is merely part of a political and psychological campaign - unless they decide to act foolishly," he added. (Albawaba.com)
