In his press conference today, IRGC Commander Maj. Gen. Aziz Jafari in a response to a question by the AP reporter, made a thinly veiled threat that Iran might be ready to add nuclear weapons to its arsenals. This is what he said:
“The nuclear capability of Iran, from the security point of view, is at an acceptable level, and (an attack by Israel) cannot cause a serious blow. (But) if the international organizations do not prevent the Zionist regime (Israel) from undertaking (an attack), Iran would also revise its (nuclear) obligations, and the situation will change,” said Gen. Jafari.
Iran has insisted that it does not have a nuclear weapon program and does not intend to build the bomb. Today’s comments by Gen. Jaffari opens the possibility that Iran could indeed go nuclear is Israel attacks its facilities. Israel, on the other hand, wants to attack the facilities to prevent Iran to go nuclear.
