Iran sends stern message to Israel
Iran would "blow up the heart" of Israel if it was attacked by the Jewish state or the United States, a Revolutionary Guards official was quoted as saying on Friday. "Even if one American or Zionist missile hits our country, before the dust settles, Iranian missiles will blow up the heart of Israel," the IRNA news agency quoted Mojtaba Zolnour as saying.
Zolnour is a deputy representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in the elite Guards force.
"The Zionist regime and the United States cannot risk attacking Iran," Zolnour said in the city of Qom on Thursday, citing Iranian military and technological advances, IRNA reported.
