Iran vows tit-for-tat response should Israel attack its nuke sites

Tehran, Apr 18 (UNI) A senior Iranian military commander threatened on Thursday to target Israel's "nuclear facilities" should it attack Iran's nuclear sites.
Ahmad Haqtalab, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) unit for protecting the country's nuclear sites, made the remarks after Israel indicated the possibility of targeting Iranian nuclear facilities to retaliate against the massive drone and missile attack last week, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported.
He said such Israeli threats were not a new thing and, since years ago, Israel had, in addition to uttering threats, committed acts of "sabotage and terror" against Iran's nuclear industry.
