The BBC is reporting this news this morning:
Iran will strike against US interests worldwide if it is attacked, the country’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has warned.
Washington accuses Tehran of secretly trying to develop a nuclear weapon, and has not ruled out using military force.
The UN imposed limited sanctions on Iran in December for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment.
The Iranians insist their nuclear programme is purely civilian and aimed at meeting its energy needs.
Iran’s state-run television on Thursday quoted Ayatollah Khamenei as saying: “The enemies know well that any aggression will lead to a reaction from all sides in the Iranian nation on the aggressors and their interests around the world.”
Khamenei, also called on Islamic nations Wednesday to “retaliate against Israel” for the construction work currently being carried out near the Temple Mount.
Iran’s former president, Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, chimed in and said the US will pay a heavy price if it chooses to invade Iran.
