Iranian political analyst Emad Abshenas, the editor-in-chief of Iran Diplomatic Newspaper, said that Israel uses commercial vessels to smuggle spies, collaborators, terrorists, and weapons, therefore if Israeli ships want to enter the region, Iran will not only target them but will "destroy" them. His remarks came after an Israeli-owned commercial ship was attacked in the Gulf of Oman, and he spoke in an interview that aired on Mayadeen TV (Lebanon) on July 30, 2021. Abshenas also said that Iran has information about the location of the Israeli nuclear warheads, and it will be able to target them if it decides to do so one day. For more about Emad Abshenas, see MEMRI TV clips nos. 9003, 8608, 8581, 8341, 8320, 8211, 8057, 8939.

Emad Abshenas: "Iran has information about the location of the [Israeli] nuclear warheads, and if it decides to attack Israel one day, it will be able to target those nuclear warheads, and then, Israel will have manufactured, on its own land, nuclear weapons to be used by Iran. There is no need to store those weapons in Iran. The point that I want to make is that the Israelis use commercial vessels that enter this region to smuggle spies, collaborators, terrorists, and weapons to the region. If these ships want to enter the region, Iran will destroy them, not just target them."
