The country’s president, Ibrahim Raisi, has warned that the Iranian military will launch an attack on the heart of Israel “even if it does little.” President Rice issued the warning during a military parade on Monday, National Armed Forces Day. Khabar Al-Jazeera.
“Jewish state, you should know … If you take even the slightest step against our country, our army will attack the heart of Israel,” Rice said.
Israel is thought to be the only nuclear-armed country in the Middle East. Westerners claim Iran wants to build nuclear weapons. In 2015, six world powers signed an agreement with Iran to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Which is known as the Iran nuclear deal.
Under the agreement, Tehran would greatly reduce its uranium enrichment, in exchange for gradually lifting various sanctions imposed on the Western world.
“Our strategy is not to attack, but to defend ourselves,” Rice said. “Iran’s military has increased its strength by taking advantage of the sanctions, and our military is now at its strongest.”
