Top Iranian official: Iran will ‘blow up’ Israel


WASHINGTON (JTA) — Iran will "blow up the heart of Israel" if attacked by Israel or the United States, a top Iranian Revolutionary Guard official said.

"Even if one American or Zionist missile hits our country, before the dust settles Iranian missiles will blow up the heart of Israel," said Mojtaba Zolnour, the respresentative of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khameni on the elite military force, according to the Iranian state-controlled IRNA news agency.

The remarks by Zolnour echo comments earlier this year by Iran’s deputy army chief that Iran would "eliminate" Israel if Israel attacked Iran.
