Iran will target “the heart of Israel” and 32 US bases in the Gulf if they launch an attack on Iran, an Iranian official has warned.
The Iranian response would come “before the dust from this attack has settled”, Mojtaba Zolnour said.
Mr Zolnour is a representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to the elite Revolutionary Guards.
His comments come amid fears that Iran could be attacked by the US and Israel over its nuclear programme.
They also followed Iran’s testing, earlier this week, of missiles capable of hitting Israel.
