(Reuters) -Â IranÂ could strike U.S. bases in the Middle East in response to any Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities, the leader of Lebanon’s Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah said on Monday.
“A decision has been taken to respond and the response will be very great,” Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in an interview with the Beirut-based Al Mayadeen television.
“The response will not be just inside the Israeli entity – American bases in the whole region could be Iranian targets,” he said, citing information he said was from Iranian officials. “If Israel targets Iran, America bears responsibility.”
But Nasrallah said there were divisions in Israel over attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities, which the West says could be part of a nuclear weapons program – a charge which Tehran denies.
“Personally I do not expect the Israeli enemy – at least in the coming months or foreseeable future – (to wage) an attack on the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he said.
