Iran's response to an Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities will not be destructive, unless they had a nuclear bomb, INSS head Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin said on Sunday, Army Radio reported.

"[Iran] won't be able to annihilate Tel Aviv until they have a nuclear bomb, and this is what we're trying to stop," the former head of Army Intelligence said.

"Even if Tehran has a few hundreds of rockets - like what Saddam Hussien had during the Gulf War - half of the rockets launched will be intercepted, and I can't recall anyone being killed from the rockets in 1990," he added.
