Iran has threatened to retaliate against the latest attacks on its nuclear facilities in Natanz, Israeli media reported on Wednesday.

According to Israeli TV Channel 13, Iran threatened to take revenge for the attacks, pointing out that the Israeli army raised the state of alarm.

“The Israeli army is afraid that Hezbollah penetrates Israeli borders to collect information,” Israeli TV reported.

“The border triangle, which connects Syria, Lebanon and Israel, will be a hot zone this summer in light of the possible Iranian retaliation against the attacks attributed to Israel,” Channel 13 added.

Consequently, the army decided to raise a state of alert on the northern front.

“Responding to cyber attacks is part of the country’s defence might. If it is proven that our country has been targeted by a cyber attack, we will respond,” Reuters reported Iran’s Civil Defence Chief Gholamreza Jalali disclosing to state TV last Thursday.
