Iranian cleric says Tel Aviv will be destroyed if Israel acts "foolishly" -TV

ANKARA, May 11 (Reuters) - A senior Iranian cleric said on Friday that if Israel acts “foolishly”, Tel Aviv and Haifa would be destroyed, state TV reported.

“We will expand our missile capabilities despite western pressure (to curb it) .... to let Israel know that if it acts foolishly, Tel Aviv and Haifa will be totally destroyed,” hardline cleric Ahmad Khatami said during Friday prayers at Tehran University.
