In Video, Iran Threatens to Raze Tel Aviv, Destroy Dimona, If Israel Hits Nuke Sites

Iran’s state broadcaster has aired a video describing what it claims would be the response to an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear sites, warning that Israeli targets would be destroyed within minutes, and that a follow-up wave of rocket attacks would “raze Tel Aviv.”

The video aired on Iran’s state-controlled media on December 17, and was reported upon by the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute monitor group on Monday, December 26.

In the clip, narrator Younes Shadlou began by noting that Israel had recently held exercises with the US to simulate an attack on Iran.

“Let’s assume that Israeli jets manage to reach the Natanz nuclear site in one piece” and manage to damage it, Shadlou posited, referring to a major facility buried under a mountain where Iran has installed advanced centrifuges to enrich uranium.

“Even if they manage to leave Iran’s sky safely,” he continued, it would take the jets “at least an hour” to return to their base. “The question is whether there would be any base for them to land at,” Shadlou said.

The remarks were followed by footage showing multiple launches of surface-to-surface missiles and impacts on the ground, as Shadlou predicted the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps would launch barrages of solid-fuel missiles that “in less than seven minutes will destroy their targets with great accuracy.” (TOI / VFI News)

“God, we ask that Iranian threats against Israel will not be materialized, and that Israel is able to defend its citizens at all times, regardless of the origin of the potential perpetrators.”
