According to a New York Post report, Iran is threatening a “painful response” if Israel retaliates to the hundreds of missiles and drone strikes launched at the Iron Dome over the weekend.

From The New York Post:

Iran is reportedly getting a terrifying arsenal from Russia, including anti-aircraft launchers and fighter jets — and is threatening to fire weapons it has never before used in “a severe, extensive and painful response” to the “slightest action” by Israel.

Abolfazl Amouei, a spokesperson for the Iranian Parliament’s National Security Committee, told a local news station Monday that the Islamic Republic “will confront any Israeli aggression and respond to it.”

“We are ready to use weapons that we have not used before,” the official told Al-Mayadeen News, according to the Economic Times.

“We have plans for all scenarios, and we call on the Zionists to act rationally.”

Separately, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi warned Israel that if it takes even the “slightest action,” it will face “a severe, extensive and painful response.”

“The blind support of some Western countries to the Zionist regime is the cause of tension in the region,” he claimed, according to the Daily Express.

“We will respond in a massive, broad and painful manner to the slightest action targeting Iranian interests.”

The threats come after years of the international community worrying about Iran’s nuclear capabilities.

The Islamic Republic has several nuclear research sites, two uranium mines, a research reactor and three uranium enrichment plants, the Daily Mail reports.

Meanwhile, President Biden continues to abandon our greatest ally in the Middle East; he has signaled to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu that the U.S. will not support a strike against Iran.
