Default Iran's deputy interior minister threatens U.S. world interests and Israel if Iran is attacked

Mohammad Baqer Solghadr, deputy interior minister, has been tagged for
this top post by Iranian leaders engrossed in war preparations,
according to DEBKAfile's Iranian sources. He told the official Iranian
news agency IRNA Thursday: "Nowhere would be safe for America with
(Iran's) long-range missiles... we can fire tens of thousands of
missiles every day." He added: "With long-range missiles Iran can also
threaten Israel as America's ally" and US Middle East bases.

DEBKAfile's military sources report that Solghadr was not overstating
Iran's missile capabilities. The Islamic Republic's expanded war
preparations must be taken into account as encompassing Syria, the
Lebanese Hizballah and the Palestinian Hamas, the Jihad Islami, the
Fatah-al Aqsa Brigades and the Popular Resistance Committees. Tehran
has armed and harnessed these allies and proxies for response to a US
or Israeli attack on Iran which Tehran is certain is planned for the
summer months.

They have been fed with an assortment of missiles of varying ranges by
Iranian air and sea lifts. Putting together the missile arsenals piled
up in Iran, Syria, and amassed by Hizballah and Palestinian groups
yields a total that makes a daily barrage of several thousand missiles
against Israel and US regional bases feasible. This deterrent, put in
place over several months, allowed Zolghadr to issue his threat with

His words were also a response to last week's visits by US defense
secretary Robert Gates to Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Iraq, which Tehran
took to be a rallying of allies as part of Washington's preparations
for war.

In Ankara, the European Union's foreign policy executive Javier Solana
and Iran's nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani held a second session
Thursday, April 26, aimed at ending the standoff over Iran's nuclear
program. Solana reported progress but "no big breakthrough."
