MP Warns of Iran's Tough Retaliation against Israeli Attack

"If they want to commit suicide, they should know that Iran's response to any aggression will be unpredictable," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Javad Jahangirzadeh told FNA.

His remarks come after the recently retired Mossad chief, Meir Dagan, came under fire from the Israeli regime's ministers on Thursday for his public call on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu a day earlier to decide against a military strike on Iran's nuclear sites.

Jahangirzadeh reiterated that Israel has become aware of its lose-lose game in the region and realized that the regional developments are making it closer to complete annihilation.

"The Israelis should be aware that in case of any aggression against Iran, the Islamic Republic's Armed Forces will end the regime's life through a brief maneuver in the least possible time," he underlined.

Israel and its close ally the United States have repeatedly warned of a military strike on Iran.

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

Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

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 the US as well as their worldwide interests in case it comes under attack by either country.

Iran has also warned it could close the strategic Strait of Hormoz if it became the target of a military attack over its nuclear program.

Strait of Hormoz, the entrance to the strategic Persian Gulf waterway, is a major oil shipping route.

Meantime, a study by the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), a prestigious American think tank, has found that a military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities "is unlikely" to delay the country's civilian program.

The ISIS study also cautioned that an attack against Iran would backfire by compelling the country to acquire nuclear weaponry.

Also a study by a fellow at Harvard's Olin Institute for Strategic Studies, Caitlin Talmadge, warned that Iran could use mines as well as missiles to block the strait, and that "it could take many weeks, even months, to restore the full flow of commerce, and more time still for the oil markets to be convinced that stability had returned."
