Lt. Gen. Mohammad Bagheri, Iran’s chief of staff, said that Israel’s main nuclear power plant in Dimona would be the “first target” if a war breaks out in the region between Iran and Israel.
An attack on Israel’s Negev desert would require the use of “multiple rocket fire” to incapacitate Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system, according to Iranian officer Mohammad Bagheri.
Iranian state television broadcast Bagheri’s statements on “mutual” destruction two days after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) completed a series of large-scale military exercises involving repeated strikes on a virtual target.
According to Bagheri, the simulated attack “was not just a show”, is a “perfect copy of reality; [where] Dimona’s plant and the nuclear reactor will explode completely,” Bagheri said.
The commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Hossein Salami, warned that the Iranian exercise was “a serious message” to Israel during the “Great Prophet 17” exercise.
