TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran would "blow up the heart" of Israel if the Jewish state or the United States attacked the Islamic Republic, a Revolutionary Guards official said in comments published on Friday.
"Even if one American or Zionist missile hits our country, before the dust settles, Iranian missiles will blow up the heart of Israel," the official IRNA news agency quoted Mojtaba Zolnour as saying.
He is a deputy representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in the elite Guards force. Iranian officials have also in the past said the country would retaliate in case of any Israeli or U.S. attack on it.
