War: First attack was warning, we can hit Tel Aviv, Israel’s ports – Iran Foreign Minister

Iran’s Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdullahi, has said the first attack on Israel was a warning.

Amir-Abdullahi said Iran could decide to attack Israel’s cities of Tel Aviv, Haifa and its economic ports.

He spoke with NBC News’ Tom Llamas, on Friday on the sidelines of the United Nations Security Council in the United States, US.

Amir-Abdullahi said Iran was not planning to respond unless Israel launched a significant attack.

He said: “We could have hit Haifa and Tel Aviv.

“We could have also targeted all the economic ports of Israel.

“But our red lines were civilians.

“We only had a military purpose.

“As long as there is no new adventurism by Israel against our interests, then we are not going to have any new reactions.

“If Israel takes decisive action against my country, this is proven to us.

“Our response will be immediate and to the maximum and will cause them to regret it.”

He also likened the weapons used in attacking his country to children’s toys.

Amir-abdollahian’s remark is coming amid reports of Israel carrying out a retaliatory attack on Iran.

Last weekend, Iran shot a barrage of drones and missiles towards Israel in retaliation for the April 1 attack in Damascus, Syria that killed some of its generals.

However, the Iranian Foreign Minister didn’t confirm that Israel was behind the recent attack on Iran.

“What happened last night was not a strike.

“They were more like toys that our children play with – not drones,” he said.
