A senior Iranian commander warned that the country will reciprocate any enemy invasion with massive aggressive response, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Saturday.
"If we are attacked, we will reciprocate it with (a counter) attack ... and we have even planned for multi-dimensional and massive attacks if necessary," Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Cultural Affairs and Defense Publicity, Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, said on Saturday.
Jazzayeri underlined that security of Iran and its friends is of vital importance to Tehran, adding that, "In case this security is threatened, Iran will certainly show the necessary and a very serious reaction."
The Iranian commander described Iran's military doctrine as a defensive one, but said, "We have added certain elements to this doctrine so as not to be a mere defender against threats and if we are attacked, we will also attack."
Western countries, including the United States and Israel, suspect the Iranian nuclear activities and claim that the Islamic republic is pushing its nuclear program for weapon-grade activities. Iran has stressed that its nuclear program aims at " peaceful" purposes.
The United States and Israel have not ruled out the possibility to attack Iran's nuclear facilities.
