Tehran: Tel Aviv and Haifa to be destroyed if Israel acts 'foolishly'
A senior Iranian cleric Ahmad Khatami said that if Israel acts "foolishly", Tel Aviv and Haifa would be destroyed, state TV reported.
"We will expand our missile capabilities despite western pressure (to curb it) .... to let Israel know that if it acts foolishly, Tel Aviv and Haifa will be totally destroyed," the cleric said during Friday prayers at Tehran University.
On Thursday morning, Israel attacked tens of Iranian military facilities in Syria in response to a missile attack on the army positions in the Golan Heights. Earlier on Thursday, Iran’s Quds Force had launched at least 20 missiles and other projectiles on the frontlines of the Israeli army in the Golan Heights, according to Israel.
