Iran Says “War with Israel has Already Begun” as new covert strikes take place in Iran
More attacks against more alleged secret Iranian nuclear facilities by Israel have just occurred again and Iran is planning a retaliatory strike! From Zerohedge;
Amid a recent spate of covert espionage attacks on Iranian infrastructure – some publicly known and more that are possibly unknown – Iran’s foreign ministry has declared that “war with Israel has already begun”.
A foreign ministry spokesmen told the major Israeli national Hebrew-language daily newspaper Maariv that “Israel has carried out attacks that were intended to destroy our nuclear program for peaceful purposes.” Saeed Khatibzadeh declared “the war with Israel has already begun” – in an ominous message intended as a warning to the Israeli public and leadership.
The spokesman added that Israel “has murdered nuclear scientists and harmed the Iranian people. Iran is blamed for terrorism, but there is no good or bad terrorist. The entire crisis in the region is the fault of Israel.”
Rare or unlikely as it is for a top Iranian official to speak to Israeli publication, it’s the closest Tehran has come in years to direct communication with Israeli entities. It’s a sign that the two countries are truly on the brink of direct conflict.
“Israel severely harmed our civilian and research system,” he described. “They speak about the Iranian nuclear threat, but Israel has hundreds of bombs, and it never signed the non-proliferation treaty for nuclear weapons.”
Then we have more evidence of a stealth attack from Israel on Iranian facilities that caused a lot of damage. From Hal Turner:
Israel reportedly sent military aircraft over Azerbaijan and out into the Caspian Sea to launch at least one large missile against what is alleged to be a “secret” nuclear facility in Iran, near the capital, Tehran.
Intelligence intercepts confirm the attack took place and that the internal agencies in Iran are directly blaming Israel.
Complicating matters is that the facility is allegedly protected by short, medium and long range Iranian missile defenses, which apparently did not see the incoming attack.
Intelligence intercepts also confirm that retaliation against the territory of Israel IS BEING PLANNED in Iran. Whether there will be political approval to launch such retaliation remains to be seen.
