(JPost) Iran will "attack the heart of Tel Aviv" in the event that Israel launches an attack against the Islamic Republic's nuclear facilities, the Fars News Agency quoted a senior Iranian cleric as saying on Saturday.
"They do not dare to damage our nuclear centers and know very well that any move against the Islamic Republic will make them regret," Hojjatoleslam Seyed Reza Taqavi was quoted as saying.
The comments came as Israel accused Iran along with its proxy Hezbollah of responsibility for Wednesday's terror attack in Bulgaria in which five Israelis were killed. Both Tehran and Hezbollah have denied any involvement in the attack.
"The unfounded statements by different statesmen of the Zionist regime in connection with the accusations against Iran about its possible participation in the incident with the blown-up bus with Israeli tourists in Burgas is a familiar method of the Zionist regime, with a political aim, and is a sign of the weakness ... of the accusers," the Islamic Republic's mission in Sofia said in a statement on Thursday.
