"If the Zionist Regime (Israel) attacks Iran, we will surely strike its nuclear facilities with our missile capabilities," Mohammad Ali Jafari, Guards commander-in-chief, said.
Jafari said Israel was entirely within the reach of Iran. "Our missile capability puts all of the Zionist regime (Israel) within Iran's reach to attack," Jafari said.
Iranian leaders have said Iran would respond to any attack from Israel by targeting U.S. interests and Israel. Jafari said Iran "was not scared" of Israel's military capabilities.
The Obama administration is dispatching four of its most senior foreign policy and security figures to Israel this coming week to urge the country to shelve any plan for a military strike to sabotage Iran's nuclear facilities, arguing that Obama's offer of engagement and talks with Iran deserves time to bear fruit.
Obama's senior military advisers say a strike could cause more problems than it solves in the short run, but Israeli leaders are firm that their small country in Iran's line of fire must make such calculations for itself
