Iran’s armed forces will target Israel’s heart if it makes “the slightest move” against the Islamic Republic, President Ebrahim Raisi told a military parade on Monday.
“If you make slightest move against our nation … our armed forces destination will be the heart of the Zionist regime,” Raisi said in a televised speech.
Israel, which the Islamic Republic refuses to recognise, has said it will not accept the Islamic Republic as “a nuclear threshold state” as Tehran and world powers try to revive a 2015 nuclear pact.
Almost a year of indirect talks between Tehran and Washington were suspended last month.
Israel has said it will not be bound by any deal and could eventually take unilateral action against Iranian nuclear sites.
