If war breaks out in the Strait of Hormuz, nothing will remain of Israel

Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari warned, “Our response to Israel is clear: I do not believe anything will remain of Israel (should it attack Iran). Given Israel’s small land area and its vulnerability to Iran’s massive number of missiles, I don’t think any spot in Israel will remain safe.” He said Iran’s response to any attack will begin near the Israeli border. Iran has close ties with Palestinians and Lebanon, both of whom have defeated Israeli in two separate short-term wars in recent years. He said he did not believe, however, that Israel would attack on its own. Should the US launch a strike, Jafari suggested that Iran could respond with missile salvos at US bases in the Persian Gulf. “The US military bases sprawled around Iran are considered a major vulnerability. Even the missile shields they have set up, based on information we have, could only work for a few missiles, but when exposed to a massive number of missiles, the shields will become ineffective.” He also said, “If a war breaks out where one side is Iran and the other side is the West and US, it’s only natural that a problem will occur in the Strait of Hormuz. The export of energy will be harmed. It’s natural that this will happen.” Jafari said, “If the world and international organizations fail to prevent such an attack, it’s natural that Iran’s commitments (to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty) would change, and the situation would be different than in the past. These are the risks and consequences that such an attack would bring, and these matters would be a deterrent.”
