Iran Would Respond to Attack With `Heavy Blow'

E-mail Print PDF

June 20 (Bloomberg) -- Iran would respond to an Israeli attack on nuclear facilities with a ``heavy blow,'' a senior cleric said, following a New York Times report that Israel carried out an exercise that could prepare it for such a strike.

Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, leading Friday prayers in Tehran, said today that Iran favored dialogue and would resist ``mischievous acts,'' the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency said. Such an attack would prompt an ``uproar on the part of our nation,'' Khatami said.


TVNL Comment: Israel is playing a terrbily dangerous game with its threats of a preventive attack against Iraq. They seem to believe they can do as they please with total impunity.
