Iran heavily warns Israel as President said  ‘Tiniest move’ will spark ‘fierce and painful’ response.

Iran’s president has warned the “tiniest move” against the country would bring a “fierce” response, state media reports.

“The smallest action against Iran’s interests will definitely be met with a fierce, widespread and painful response against all its perpetrators,” the Iranian president warned, according to Tasnim news agency.

President Ebrahim Raisi spoke at an annual army parade ahead of National Army Day tomorrow.

The parade was relocated to a barracks north of the capital, Tehran, from its usual venue on a highway in the city’s southern outskirts, with no explanation given for the move.

State TV did not broadcast it live, as it has in previous years.

The US is expecting Israel’s military response to the Iranian strikes to be limited in scope, sources have told CNN.

A senior administration official and another source familiar with the intelligence said it appeared Israel was considering a “narrow and limited strike” inside Iran.

One of the sources said the US has not been given official information on what the plans might be.

“We would hope that they would give us some warning so that we’re prepared to protect our personnel, not just military but diplomatic throughout the region,” the administration official told the American broadcaster.

“But there’s no guarantee they will give us a heads-up, and they know when they give us a heads-up we’re likely to again register our objection to whatever they’re about to conduct.”

The official added the US was “confident that there will be de-escalation” if Israel does not respond.

“But any additional move now opens up a series of other possibilities, some of which are quite frightening,” they said.

Meanwhile, UK Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs David Cameron is believes is clear Israel will act in response to Iran attack.

It is clear Israel is making a decision to act in response to Iran’s attack, British foreign secretary Lord Cameron says.

Speaking from Israel, where he is meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu, Lord Cameron said the UK hopes Israel’s retaliation “does as little to escalate this as possible”.

The UK wants to see “coordinated sanctions against Iran”, he said, adding there is more the UK can do.
