Tehran Times: “Zionist regime has forgotten that Iran is more than capable of hitting them from anywhere.”
The Iranian state-linked newspaper Tehran Times has revealed a list of targets in Israel that the Mullah regime intends to strike in case of a military conflict. On Wednesday, the leading Iranian English language daily published a map of Israel dotted with markers showing potential missile targets.

The list of targets highlights the Islamic Republic’s ability to strike towns and cities throughout Israel. Iran has long-range ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads. The Shia-Islamic regime is also reported to have a chemical and biological weapons program.
In case of an Iranian offensive, Israel will not only be threatened from incoming missiles from Iran. The Iranian regime has created forward bases in territories controlled by its proxy Islamic militias and terrorist groups. Iran has supplied huge stockpiles of rockets, long-range and precision-guided missiles, to Lebanese terror-militia Hezbollah, Gaza-based jihadi group Hamas and several terrorist groups in Iraq.
The warning comes just weeks after a senior Iranian military spokesman threatened the Jewish State with total ‘annihilation.’ “We will not back off from the annihilation of Israel, even one millimeter. We want to destroy Zionism in the world,” senior Iranian military spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Abolfazl Shekarchi declared late November.
The population centers in the Iranian cross hairs include Arab cities administered by the Palestinian Authority.
The Times of Israel reported the latest Iranian threat:
Iran’s state-affiliated Tehran Times issued a threat to Israel on Wednesday, publishing a map of the country riddled with markers as a reminder that Iranian forces can ostensibly strike anywhere they want.
Alongside a front-page opinion piece headlined “Just one wrong move!” the map showed scores of markers along the length and breadth of the country.
Though the paper didn’t specify what the markers represented, the article opened by declaring, “An intensification of the Israeli military threats against Iran seems to suggest that the Zionist regime has forgotten that Iran is more than capable of hitting them from anywhere.” (…)
The piece quoted Major General Mohammad Bagheri, chief of general staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, as saying Tuesday that “at the strategic level we do not intend to strike anyone, but at the operational and tactical level we are ready for a decisive response and a quick and tough offensive against the enemy.”
“The Tehran Times doesn’t need to remind the illegitimate regime of Israel of Iran’s defense capabilities,” the article said. “Yet they need to remember something.”
The paper then recalled Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s remarks in 2013 that “they are threatening to strike militarily, but I think they know it, and if they do not know it, they must know that if they make a mistake the Islamic Republic will destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa.”
Israel is the only country in the Middle East that has the military capability and the political will to stop Iran from going nuclear. By threatening the Jewish State, Iran hopes to avert an Israeli strike on its nuclear weapons facilities as it races towards the bomb.
The latest Iranian threat comes as the Biden White House is holding talks to restore the 2015 nuclear deal. Some news reports indicate that the Biden administration may be close to making economic concessions and lifting sanctions on Iran, Israeli media reports say, citing the top Iranian negotiator.
“The United States is close to reaching a deal with Iran on the removal of sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic, [the Israeli TV channel] N12 reported on Saturday citing Iranian deputy foreign minister Ali Bagheri Kani,” The Jerusalem Post wrote.
While the Biden White House is engaged in European Union-backed negotiations in Austria, Tehran is ramping up its nuclear weapons program. The United Nation’s watch dog, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), warned recently that Iran is just a step away from producing weapons-grade uranium, the key ingredient needed for a nuclear bomb. “The agency said Iran plans to enrich uranium there up to 20% purity — a short, technical step from weapons-grade levels of 90%.” The Associated Press reported earlier this month.DONATE
