TEHRAN, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Thursday that Iran will respond " powerfully" to any attack on the country by the United States and Israel, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.


"The enemies, especially the United States and the Zionist regime (of Israel) should know that Iran does not aggress any country, but will respond to any aggression (on the Islamic Republic) and even to any threats (to the country) powerfully," Khamenei made the remarks addressing Iranian army students.

"Anybody who may think of aggressions on the Islamic Republic should make itself ready to receive strong slaps and iron fists from Iranian Army, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, (the voluntary forces of) Basij and in one word from Iranian great nation," he was quoted as saying.

Khamenei called on Iran's Armed Forces to be prepared to defend the country.

Khamenei's remarks came as the reports said recently that the western countries and Israel may launch an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities as the IAEA latest report accused Iran of engaging in activities related to the development of nuclear weapons.
