Iran missiles can reach Israel atom sites-commander

TEHRAN, March 4 (Reuters) - Iranian missiles can reach Israeli nuclear sites, a top military commander said on Wednesday, amid persistent speculation that Israel could target facilities involved in Iran’s atomic work.

“All the nuclear facilities in different parts of the land under the occupation of the Zionist regime are in the reach of Iran’s missile defences,” the commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Guards, Mohammad Ali Jafari, said according to ISNA news agency.

Iranian officials often refer to Israel’s government, which Tehran does not recognise, as the “Zionist regime”. (Reporting by Zahra Hosseinian, writing by Edmund Blair)
