Arab Analyst: Israel's N. Sites within Reach of Iranian Missiles

A prominent Arab analyst questioned Tel Aviv's military capability to wage an attack against Iran, reminding that Iran's missile capability is strong enough to hit and destroy 7 Israeli nuclear facilities, including Dimona.

In an article published in the Syrian Jouhaina (JP News) news website, Kafah al-Nasr pointed to Israel's threats against Iran's nuclear facilities and Zionist officials' dream of waging an attack against Iran, and stressed that Iran enjoys the capability to repel Israel's aerial threats.

As regards Iran's retaliation against Israel's potential aggression, Nasr said Iran's missile capability is much stronger than that of Israel's, and stated, "Destroying the Dimona nuclear facility in Israel is easier than destroying any Iranian (uranium) enrichment center."

"Despite all defensive measures, the Zionist regime's air defense is not able to shield Israel against missiles and can only trace just half of the incoming (Iranian) missiles and intercept only one fourth of these missiles. Thus, destruction of Dimona would be inevitable."

Nasr noted that Iran can also hit six other nuclear power plants in Israel, in addition to Dimona.

Israel and its close ally the United States accuse Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon, while they have never presented any corroborative document to substantiate their allegations. Both Washington and Tel Aviv possess advanced weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear warheads.

Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

Speculation that Israel could bomb Iran mounted since a big Israeli air drill three years ago. In the first week of June, 2008, 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15 fighters reportedly took part in an exercise over the eastern Mediterranean and Greece, which was interpreted as a dress rehearsal for a possible attack on Iran's nuclear installations.

Iran has, in return, warned that it would target Israel and its worldwide interests in case it comes under attack by the Tel Aviv.

Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Commander Mohammad Ali Jafari said in March 2009 that all nuclear facilities in different parts of Israel are within Iran's missile range.

"Today the Islamic Republic of Iran has missiles with the range of 2,000 km and based on this fact all the territories under the control of the Zionist regime, including its nuclear facilities, are within our missile range," Major General Jafari said at the time.

He stressed the defensive nature of Iran's doctrine, but meantime, warned if Iran is faces with any enemy attacks, including those by the Zionist regime, it will respond with utmost power using all its capabilities.
