Iran is reportedly amassing a formidable arsenal from Russia, including anti-aircraft launchers and fighter jets, and has issued a chilling warning of a "severe, extensive and painful response" to even the "slightest action" by Israel.

This alarming development comes amid years of international concern over Iran's nuclear capabilities.

Abolfazl Amouei, a spokesperson for the Iranian Parliament’s National Security Committee, stated on a local news station that the Islamic Republic "will confront any Israeli aggression and respond to it." He ominously added, "We are ready to use weapons that we have not used before," as reported by the Economic Times. He further urged the Zionists to act rationally, indicating that Iran has plans for all scenarios.

In a separate statement, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi issued a stern warning to Israel, stating that even the "slightest action" would be met with "a severe, extensive and painful response." He attributed the tension in the region to the "blind support" of some Western countries for the Zionist regime, as reported by the Daily Express. He further emphasized that any action targeting Iranian interests would be met with a massive response.

The Islamic Republic, according to the Daily Mail, has several nuclear research sites, two uranium mines, a research reactor, and three uranium enrichment plants. In November 2023, the International Atomic Energy Agency reported that Iran's uranium stockpile was more than 20 times larger than the limit agreed upon under the Obama-era Iran Nuclear Deal. By December, the United Nations agency warned that Iran had enriched uranium to up to 60% purity, which is close to weapons-grade. It was further reported that Iran has enough enriched uranium to build three atomic bombs.

In addition to its nuclear capabilities, Iran is also reportedly receiving weapons from Russia, including anti-aircraft launchers and drones, as reported by the Washington Post. Russia has pledged to support Iran with air defense technology, advanced fighter jets, and technical support for its spy satellites. Further agreements between the two countries may include efforts to rebuild Iran’s Air Force and increase Iran’s supply of spy satellites.

In return, Iran has pledged to support Russia in its ongoing war against Ukraine. Iran agreed in 2022 to supply thousands of drones and missiles to Moscow to support its war efforts, and Russia agreed late last year to buy about $2 billion worth of military equipment from Iran.

The United Nations has issued a warning to both Israel and Iran against retaliation. However, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant told US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin that Israel has "no choice" but to retaliate against Iran for launching hundreds of missiles and suicide drones into Israeli airspace, according to Axios correspondent Barak Ravid.

Iran’s aerial assault was reportedly in retaliation for an Israeli airstrike in Damascus on April 1 in which a top Iranian general was killed. Israeli media later reported that the target of the strike, Gen. Mohammad Reza Zahedi, was a key planner of the Oct. 7 attack on southern Israel that killed more than 1,100 people and sparked the war in Gaza.
