Iranian advisor: We'll strike Dimona in response to U.S. attack 
By Yossi Melman, Haaretz Correspondent 
If the United States launches an attack on Iran, the Islamic republic
will retaliate with a military strike on Israel's main nuclear facility,
an advisor to Iran's Revolutionary Guard said.

The advisor, Dr. Abasi, said Tehran would respond to an American attack
with strikes on the Dimona nuclear reactor and other strategic Israeli
sites such as the port city of Haifa and the Zakhariya area.

Haifa is also home to a large concentration of chemical factories and
oil refineries. 
Zakhariya, located in the Jerusalem hills is - according to foreign
reports - home to Israel's Jericho missile base. Both Israeli and
international media have published commercial satellite images of the
Zakhariya and Dimona sites.

Abasi, a senior lecturer at Tehran University, was quoted in the Roz
internet news site, identified with reform circles in Iran.

Iranian affairs experts believe Abasi's statements are part of
propaganda battle being wages by all sides - including Israel and Iran -
in the lead up to next months United Nations Security Council debate on
Iran's nuclear program. 

At this stage, the possibility that sanctions will be leveled at Iran
are extremely low.
