Tehran, Nov 28 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Iran has warned Israel against a reported pre-emptive strike saying Tehran has 150,000 missiles pointed at the Jewish state. With Iran allegedly close to manufacturing a nuclear weapon, world leaders and several experts say the country remains the biggest threat to the existence of Israel.

In a bid to protect their country, Israel is reportedly working to strike the nuclear sites in Iran. Iran’s leaders have reacted to the reports saying an attack from Israel will be retaliated with 150,000 missiles.

During a speech aired on Iran’s FARS news network, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi questioned Israel saying “How many missiles have they prepared themselves for? 10,000? 20,000? 50,000? 100,000, 150,000 or more?”

Vahidi also warned the United States against supporting Israel in a covert attack of Iran. He told a group of supporters that an attack from the United States will receive a massive resistance.

World leaders are talking about sanctions against Iran after a report from the International Atomic Energy Agency said the country was secretly developing nuclear weapon. Iran had declared on previous occasion in the past that their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

Iran’s leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for Israel to be wiped out of the surface of the planet.
