Default '600 Iranian missiles pointed at Israel'

'600 Iranian missiles pointed at Israel'

JPost.com Staff , THE JERUSALEM POST Sep. 17, 2007
Six hundred Iranian Shihab-3 missiles are pointed at targets
throughout Israel, and will be launched if either Iran or Syria are
attacked, an Iranian website affiliated with the regime reported on
"Iran will shoot at Israel 600 missiles if it is attacked," the
Iranian news website, Assar Iran, reported. "600 missiles will only be
the first reaction."
According to the report, dozens of locations throughout Iraq, which
are being used by the US Army, have also been targeted.
The Shihab missile has a range of 1,300 km, and can reach anywhere in
On Sunday, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said that the
nuclear Iranian crisis forces the world "to prepare for the worst,"
and said that in this case it "is war."
Kouchner emphasized, however, that negotiations should still be the
preferred course of action.
Kouchner, quoted by French daily Le Figaro, added that "Iran does
whatever it pleases in Iraq ... one cannot find in the entire world a
crisis greater than this one."
In response to Kouchner's comments, Iran's state-owned news agency
accused France of pandering to the interests of the United States.
"The new occupants of the Elysee (Presidential palace) want to copy
the White House," the IRNA news agency said in an editorial. The
editorial added that French President Nicolas Sarkozy was taking on
"an American skin."
Kouchner's statements came just hours after US Defense Secretary
Robert Gates reiterated the Bush administration's commitment, at least
for the time being, to using diplomatic and economic means to counter
the potential nuclear threat from Iran.
