Iran says it will hit back

Iran says it will hit back if Israel attacks its nuclear plants as they did in Iraq.

President Mohammad Khatami of Iran has said Israel would be making a mistake if it carried out its threat to destroy Tehran's nuclear capabilities.

He was reacting to comments made last week by the Israeli defence minister.

The minister, Shaul Mofaz, had implied that Israel was making plans to destroy Tehran's nuclear sites.

Mr Mofaz's comments were the latest in a series of threats by Israel on the danger they believe Iran poses in the Middle East.

President Khatami's dismissive remarks were mild in comparison to those of other senior members of the government.

According to the Mehr news agency, the head of the Iranian air force General Seyed Reza Pardis said if Israel launches an attack on Iran, it will be "digging its own grave."
