Iran-Israel tensions: Iranian scholar threatens destruction

Ahmad Khatami said Israeli cities face destruction if that country continues to act 'foolishly'.

    A prominent Iranian scholar has threatened the destruction of two Israeli cities following the worst face-off to date between the two countries over Syria.

    Early on Thursday morning, Israel fired dozens of missiles at what it alleged were Iranian positions in Syria.

    It says it was responding to an Iranian attack on its troops in the occupied Golan Heights - which Iran vehemently denies.
