Iran Threatens to Strike American Targets in Iraq If Its Nuclear Installations Are Attacked

At a conference on “The Persian Gulf” in Iran yesterday, Iran’s minister of defense threatened to strike at U.S. targets in Iraq, the Gulf, and Afghanistan if Iran’s nuclear facilities are attacked.

He added ominously that U.S. war ships in the Gulf will make the best targets for Iranian forces.
