Iran: Israel, US Incapable of Hitting Us

Iran's Deputy Chief of Staff, Rullam Ali Rasheed, said Sunday that neither Israel nor the U.S. were involved in the huge explosion at an army base outside Tehran last week. Neither had the ability to reach into Iran in such a manner, he said, adding that “the Mossad and the CIA take credit for all natural or normal events.”

Last week, several American experts declared that Israel was behind the explosion. Israel has not commented on those reports.
