BBC NEWS | Middle East | Iran issues Israel attack warning
Iran has drawn up plans to bomb Israel if it launches an attack on Iranian soil first, military officials say.

The deputy commander of Iran’s air force said that in the “unlikely event” of an Israeli attack, Tehran could respond with air and missile raids.

Israel’s foreign ministry said the comments were alarming and showed that the international community should take a “very firm stance” on Iran.

The US dismissed Iran’s remarks as “unhelpful” and “not constructive”.

Iran denies the claims by Israel and the West that it is trying to acquire nuclear weapons, insisting it wants nuclear power to generate electricity for civilian use.

‘Silly mistake’
