Iran's military chief of staff says Tehran could strike Israel's nuclear facility if the Jewish state were to attack Iran's nuclear sites.

The semiofficial Mehr news agency quoted Gen. Hasan Firouzabadi as saying Iran hopes there won't "be a need to target the nuclear facility of the Zionist regime," but if there is Israel would receive "dreadful retribution."

Israel's main nuclear reactor is located near Dimona in the Negev desert.

Firouzabadi was speaking Friday on Quds Day, an annual state-backed anti-Israel rally in Iran. Iranian officials often use the occasion to make threatening remarks against Israel.

Israel has not ruled out a military strike against Iran's nuclear sites.

Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. Israel and the West fear Iran aims to develop nuclear weapons.
