Iran Defense Minister: Israeli strike would be a suicide mission
Monday, December 26, 2011
Iran’s defense minister said Sunday that any Israeli strike on Iran would constitute suicide, the official news agency IRNA reported.
“The Zionist regime is completely isolated and under no circumstances it can attack Iran unless she wants to commit a suicide,” IRNA quoted Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi as saying. “It is due to the fact that it will receive deadly strikes from Iran which will make it unstable.”
He stressed that Iran is developing its defense capabilities and has made significant progress thus far.
“Iran is in a unique position in all areas, including manufacture of unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, as well as defense and assault airplanes. Iran has also made great progress in electronic warfare technology, aviation industries and missile technology,” IRNA quoted him as saying.
