(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada / TEHRAN, Iran - November 14, 2011: Amid speculations about the possibility of an Israeli attack against Iranian nuclear sites, Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi insists the Israeli regime is too weak to harm the Islamic Republic.

Any attempt by the “Zionist regime” to enter into a conflict with a power such as Iran will be suicidal, said Vahidi, speaking Sunday to reporters at the sideline of a ceremony, unveiling three types of sport and hunting weapons.

“Anytime the Zionist regime desires to commit suicide, it should then adopt such a decision,” the top general said, quoted in an IRIB report.

As Iran has repeatedly emphasized, the Islamic Republic will firmly respond to any foreign threat in a manner that would make the enemy think twice before engaging in any sort of aggression against the nation, the minister emphasized.

Vahidi reiterated that an attack against Iran by the Israeli regime will spell into an end to its existence.

Washington and the Tel Aviv regime have repeatedly threatened Tehran with military strikes on the false pretext that Iran's nuclear program may have a covert military diversion.

Israeli President Shimon Peres claimed on November 6 that an attack against the Islamic Republic was getting "more and more likely,” a claimed fiercely rejected by many international observers and officials.

Tehran has categorically refuted rhetorical allegations by US-led Western powers, saying that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Iranian officials have vowed to deliver a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would certainly reach far beyond the Middle East.

With over 50 types of state-of-the-art missiles at its disposal, Iran is readily capable of delivering a death blow to any aggressor who ventures to violate its soil. However, Iran has frequently said its military might poses no threat to other countries and that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
