Tehran, Iran, May 02 – Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps issued a daring threat on Tuesday to attack Israel if the United States carried out “mischief”.

“We have announced that wherever America carries out mischief, the first place we will target is Israel”, Rear Admiral Mohammad-Ibrahim Dehqani said. His comments were reported by the state-run news agency ISNA.

Dehqani said that Israel did not have the necessary preparations to fight Iran.

“Since 1994, America was after getting its hands on [the Persian Gulf”> region to influence the production, cost, and expenditure of oil, but until now has been unable to dominate any of these factors”, he said.

He described the 50-kilometre-wide Strait of Hormuz as the “most sensitive point” in the world. “70 percent of the world’s oil is situated in this region and many ships cross this strait”.

In April, the IRGC hinted that Iran may block the strait situated on its southern shores to put pressure on its “enemies”.

The general said that the International Atomic Energy Agency had recognised the Islamic Republic as a nuclear power.

Recent IRGC naval war-games held in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman were meant as a warning to the U.S and the “Zionist regime”, he added.

Hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, himself a former senior commander in the IRGC, caused an international furore last year when he publicly declared that the Holocaust was a “myth” and threatened that Israel must be “wiped off the map”.
