Iranian war games warn West


Iran’s latest round of war games come with warnings for Israel and the United States. Revolutionary Guards General Amir Ali Hajizadeh has said Iran is prepared to strike at Israel and US interests in the event of any attack on Iran.

Day two of a planned ten-day show of strength, dubbed Great Prophet 6, saw the launch of 14 surface-to-surface missiles given bold play by Iranian television.

The Islamic Republic is locked in a dispute with the West over its nuclear activities, but it said no Iranian missiles threatened Europe. Washington and Israel have said they do not rule out military strikes on Iran if diplomatic means fail to stop it from developing nuclear weapons.

Tehran denies UN sanction-backed western charges that it plans to use its civil nuclear programme for bombs.
