Iran threatened on Tuesday to attack Israel in response to any "evil" act by the United States.


"We have announced that wherever America does something evil, the first place that we target will be Israel," ISNA quoted a senior Revolutionary Guards commander, Rear Admiral Mohammad-Ebrahim Dehqani, as saying on Tuesday.


Meanwhile, Iran said Tuesday it had found uranium ore at three new sites in the center of the country. "We have got good news: the discovery of new economically viable deposits of uranium in central Iran," Mohammad Ghannadi, deputy chief for nuclear research and technology, told a conference.


According to the AP, he said the deposits were found in the Khoshoomi region, Charchooleh and Narigan. Ghannadi said Iran's enrichment of uranium was continuing.
