Iran has threatened to strike Israel’s nuclear facilities in case of aggression.

Iran has threatened to strike Israel’s nuclear facilities in case of aggression.

Iran is ready for a mirror response in the event of an Israeli attack on its nuclear facilities, said the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps units for ensuring the security of Iranian nuclear facilities, Ahmad Haktalab.

“If Israel wants to take action against our nuclear facilities, it will definitely face our response – Israel and its nuclear facilities will be attacked. <…> Israel’s nuclear facilities have been identified, the necessary information about all targets is at our disposal, and in order to respond to their possible aggressive actions, our hands are already on the trigger of launching powerful missiles to destroy identified targets,”  a senior military official said.

Haktalab warned that after the Israeli attack, Tehran may reconsider its nuclear doctrine.


In recent years, the Iranian leadership has stated that it does not intend to create nuclear weapons, and the development of atomic energy is exclusively peaceful.


Iran struck Israel on the night of April 14 in response to the destruction of its consulate in Syria earlier in the month. The attack, according to various sources, involved several hundred drones and missiles, including the hypersonic Fattah and Fattah-2.


According to the Israeli army, Iran has launched about 170 drones, more than 30 cruise missiles and over 120 ballistic missiles. Tel Aviv says that only “a few missiles” reached the country and caused “minor damage.”
