Israeli Partners in Iran Aggression Fore-warned

This is the first time I have heard the term "Israel's assistants" referring to those countries who may assist Israel in attacking Iran.  Another hot spot to watch..  Any developement along the lines of this type of military strike would definately be great cause for our military.

TEHRAN, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- Chairman of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Seyyed Mohammad Hejazi said that Iran would punish Israel's assistants in the war against the country, Iran's Press TV reported Sunday.

Iran has drawn up plans to take retaliatory measures against potential aggressors and their accomplices, Hejazi was quoted as saying.

According to Press TV, "if Washington assists Tel Aviv in a war against Tehran, its forces would have to use territories of the two U.S.-occupied countries (Iraq and Afghanistan) or Bahrein where the U.S. 5th Fleet is stationed."

The United States, Israel and their Western allies accuse Iran of secretly developing nuclear weapons, but Iran insists that its nuclear program is only for generating electricity.

Speculations has flared up that Israel might carry out a military strike against Iran's nuclear sites.

The frequent training mission of the Israel Air Force (IAF) has geared up for the possible conflict.

Commander of Israeli Air Force (IAF) General, Ido Nehushtan, has also said in a recent interview that his forces are "ready" to attack Iran's nuclear sites whenever Tel Aviv gives a green light.

Washington and Israel have consistently refused to rule out the possibility of military strikes against Iran over its refusal to halt its nuclear program.

Iran announced earlier this month that the country has successfully test-fired anew surface-to-surface Sejjil missile, which has a range of about 2,000 km.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also warned that his country will give a crushing response to any invaders as it possesses new generation missiles that can reach U.S. bases in the Middle East and Israel.

Tehran has reiterated the rhetoric that in case "any of its national interests come under attack by either the United States or Israel, its armed forces would target Israel and American bases in the region."

Israeli Partners in Iran Aggression Fore-warned

A senior military commander said Iran will retaliate against any country that would aid and abet a strike against Iran.

Brigadier General Seyyed Mohammad Hejazi, Chairman of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Saturday that Iran has contingent plans to take retaliatory measures against aggressors and their backers, Presstv reported.

If conflict arises Iran can and will become "an even bigger quagmire" for the aggressors than Iraq and Afghanistan. The latest warning comes amid reports that Israel has stepped up plans to portray Iran as a threat to the world because of its civilian nuclear program.

Tehran, a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) denies western and Israeli claims that it is trying to build a nuclear bomb, and insists that its uranium enrichment program is solely for economic needs.

While maintaining that a nuclear Iran would pose an existential threat to Tel Aviv, Israeli officials argue that the use of military force is a "legitimate option" to halt Iran's nuclear progress.

Since the historic victory of Barack Obama in the US presidential elections, Tehran has seen a visible increase in Israeli threats against its nuclear program.

Commander of Israeli Air Force (IAF) General, Ido Nehushtan said in a recent interview that his forces are 'ready' to attack Iran's nuclear sites whenever necessary.

A senior politician and former top Israeli military official, Lieutenant General Moshe Ya'alon, declared last week that an attack on Iran would be in line with efforts to topple the Tehran government.

Iran has made known that if its national interest is undermined by either the US or Israel, its armed forces would target Israel and American military bases spread in the strategic region.

"We have ensured that if any harm comes to Iran, anyone who assists the aggressor will face retribution," warned Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri.

The general was quoted as saying that the IRGC naval forces are capable of destroying US warships in the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz -- if the White House tries any military adventurism in the oil-rich region.

No Threat

Head of the armed forces' Center for Strategic Studies Ali Shamkhani said on Sunday that Iran's Sejil missile poses no threat for any country.

Sejil is a 2,000-km range surface-to-surface missile which was newly test fired in Iran.

It is a two-stage, high launching speed missile designed and manufactured by experts of the armed forces.

Shamkhani, former defense minister, said that the missile was manufactured in line with Iran's deterrent policy.

Speaking on the sidelines of the 15th International Press and News Agencies Exhibition, Shamkhani said Iran has been under enemies' threats since the victory of its Islamic Revolution in 1979.

"We should confront these threats very seriously," he said. "We have not been and would not be the beginner of any aggression against other countries," Shamkhani said stressing that Sejil was only produced for defensive purposes.

Leader's top advisor for the armed forces affairs, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said on Sunday that Iran is capable of firing a series of surface to surface Sejil missiles.

The new generation of surface-to-surface missiles called 'Sejil' has increased the defense capability of the Iranian armed forces in dealing with any threats, he said. It is the legitimate right of every nation to gain access to advanced technologies to defend its territory, he said.

Some countries in the southern parts of Persian Gulf are among top purchasers of weapons in the world but Iran with reliance on its military experts has developed indigenous technology to defend itself against threats posed by the US and the Zionist regime, he said.
