IRGC officer warns: Iran is capable of striking Israeli nuclear facilities
04/29/2024 // Kevin Hughes // Views

A senior officer of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has warned Israel that Iran is capable of striking Israeli nuclear facilities. IRGC Brig. Gen. Ahmad Haghtalab claimed they have the necessary information about the location of those targets.

"We have a hand on the trigger to launch powerful missiles and destroy those targets," added Haghtalab in a statement to Iranian news agency Tasnim. Haghtalab, the officer responsible for protecting the Iranian sites, also said the Israeli nuclear facilities could be hit in a counterattack.

The Israeli nuclear industry has a public civilian component along with an alleged military component.

Tensions have increased in the Middle East this month after an Israeli airstrike on the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Syria on April 1, in which seven IRGC officers were killed, including a high-ranking officer within the IRGC's special forces unit, the Quds Force.

Tehran retaliated last April 13 with a large barrage of drones and missiles, most of which were reportedly downed by Israel and its supporters, including Jordan. Israel responded with a strike on the central Iranian city of Isfahan. No Iranian nuclear sites were targeted.

Israel has an estimated 80 nuclear weapons at its disposal

Israel has an estimated 80 nuclear weapons at its disposal, including 30 gravity bombs and 50 warheads for medium-range ballistic missiles, as reported by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, a well-known international security watchdog.

Haghtalab didn't mention which sites Iran intends to hit.

Israel has been accusing Iran of covertly developing nuclear weapons for decades. Gilad Erdan, Israel's representative at the United Nations, asserted on April 14 that Tehran was only weeks away from building a nuclear weapon, as he appealed to members of the UN Security Council to contemplate what would have occurred if Iran "could have launched a nuclear bomb" when it attacked Israel. However, these claims were immediately dismissed by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The Iranian leadership has said that it regards all weapons of mass destruction as incompatible with Islam.

Nevertheless, Haghtalab stated that it would be "conceivable" for Tehran to review its "nuclear doctrine and politics" if Israel keeps threatening its nuclear facilities. "The threats of the Zionist regime against Iran's nuclear facilities make it possible to revise our nuclear doctrine and deviate from our previous considerations," Haghtalab said.

"If the Zionist regime wants to take action against our nuclear centers and facilities, it will definitely and surely face our reaction. For the counterattack, the nuclear facilities of the (Israeli) regime will be targeted and operated upon with advanced weaponry."

Nuclear sites are usually treated off limits for military action. But Haghtalab pointed out that Israel's attack on the consulate, an internationally protected diplomatic mission, was evidence that it does not care about playing by the rules. (Related: Iran just proved it can hit Israel with "Kheibar Shekan" ballistic missiles.)
