Iran: Any attack on our nuclear facility will be beginning of war
By Amir Oren, Haaretz Correspondent
Tehran will consider any military action against its nuclear facilities as the beginning of a war, Iran's official news agency IRNA reported Friday.
The commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, General Mohammad Ali Jafari, was quoted as saying that any country that attacks Iran would regret doing so.
According to the report, Jafari has warned that such a step would be the beginning of war. Advertisement
However, the general was also quoted as saying that he considers it unlikely Iran's adversaries would attempt an attack.
In a newspaper interview last week, Jafari warned that if attacked, Iran would barrage Israel with missiles and choke off the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a narrow outlet for oil tankers leaving the Persian Gulf.
Israel carried out a large military exercise last month, seen throughout the media as a rehearsal for an attack on Iran.
