LONDON (Reuters) - Iran will firmly respond if Israel's navy acts against its oil sales, Iranian minister of defence said on Wednesday, a week after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the navy could act against Iranian oil "smuggling" despite U.S. sanctions.

Amir Hatami was quoted as saying by the state news agency IRNA that such action would be considered "piracy" and warned that "if it happens, we will firmly respond."
