Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan in an interview warned the Saudis that any military action against Iran would lead to the destruction of almost all of the kingdom. Dehqan said the Saudis should not be fooled to believe that their air force is strong enough to threaten Iran. He said only the holy cities of Mecca and Medina would be spared should the Saudis – as he put it – perpetrate any act of stupidity against Iran.
