Iranian political analyst Foad Izadi said that Iran has a large number of accurate and powerful ballistic missiles that are based in south Lebanon, and that they can target Israel. He made these remarks in an interview with China's official Arabic language broadcaster CGTN that aired on April 15, 2021. Izadi said that this is the reason why Israeli PM Netanyahu "only threatens" to attack Iran, but never does. He said that Israel knows full well that Iran has measures that it can use to "defend itself." For more about Foad Izadi, see MEMRI TV clips Nos. 8598, 8180, 7919, and 7837.
Foad Izadi: "Iran's ballistic missiles are accurate and powerful. Iran has a large number of missiles in South Lebanon. One of the reasons the Netanyahu threatens to attack Iran but never does is that he knows that Israel would be hit by missile attacks from South Lebanon. Therefore, Iran has measure it can take to defend itself. I know that Israel knows this full well."
