Iran's nuclear facilities 100% secure: AEOI chief

TEHRAN, Apr. 23 (MNA) – The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami says that the country's nuclear facilities are completely safe.

Eslami made the remarks while speaking at a ceremony in Bushehr in southwestern Iran on Monday.

"Our security is 100% established and the country has a strong security and defense system and will respond to any invasion," the Iranian official stressed.

There are no concerns in this regard, Eslami added.

His remarks come amid recent heightened tensions between Iran and the Israeli regime following an unprecedented retaliatory airstrike by the Iranian armed forces on Israel.

The Israeli regime attacked Iran's consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus on April 1. The Israeli aggression led to the destruction of the entire building and the martyrdom and injury of the entire people inside it.

Seven of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military advisors were martyred following the Israeli attack on Iran's consulate in Damascus, IRGC said in a statement.

In response to the Israeli aggression, Iran attacked the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories with a barrage of drones and missiles early on Sunday.

Following the attack, Iran announced that it does not seek to create tension in the region and had carried out the anti-Zionist operation to punish the Zionist regime. However, the Iranian political and military officials have strongly warned that the country would give a severe response in case of any fresh Israeli aggression.
