Olmert said Israel was not afraid of the situation in Iran: “We are concerned, but we don’t have to lose our head.”
Earlier Monday, an Iranian Web site affiliated with the regime reported that 600 Shihab-3 missiles were pointed at targets throughout Israel and would be launched if either Iran or Syria were attacked.
“Iran will shoot 600 missiles at Israel if it is attacked,” the Iranian news Web site, Assar Iran, reported, saying such a barrage would “only be the first reaction.”
According to the report, dozens of locations throughout Iraq being used by the US Army have also been targeted. The Shihab missile has a range of 1,300 km. and can reach anywhere in Israel.
The report on the Iranian Web site came fast on the heels of the reports of an alleged IAF bombing raid inside Syria of what some foreign news reports say was a nuclear cache or installation.
