A new video reportedly making the rounds in Iran shows the nuclear bombing of Israel, describing the act as a “Holocaust.” It also simulates graphically the potential Iranian response to a military attack on its territory.
The latest video follows a simulation aired by Iranian state television earlier this month depicting an Iranian attack on the American aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and Israeli cities.
Israel’s Channel 2 News reported that this latest animated video began showing up on Iranian websites on Monday.
The short video set to a militaristic soundtrack presents doomsday scenarios, including the massive launching of intercontinental ballistic missiles, blasting American and Israeli fighter jets out of the sky, and most chillingly, the nuclear destruction of the Jewish state.
At one point, an image of the English word “Holocaust” next to a Jewish Star of David appears in the video.
The Israeli newspaper Haaretz provided more information on the Persian-language video.
“In the movie, Western nations realize that the Islamic Republic has no intention to cease its nuclear development. To prevent Iran from building a bomb, the United States and its allies decide to take military action to destroy Tehran’s nuclear sites,” Haaretz wrote.
After the hypothetical joint U.S.-Israeli airstrike is beaten back, Iran’s air force is shown going on the offensive. Its jets are seen flying over Jerusalem and the Al Aqsa mosque.
“The graphic illustration of a nuclear attack against Israel will hardly allay fears in Jerusalem and elsewhere that Tehran's nuclear program is far from peaceful,” wrote Israel National News.
The new video came out just as talks over Iran’s controversial nuclear program resumed in Vienna this week.
On Thursday, Iranian state media reported that its negotiators had reached an agreement with western nations on a framework for the next rounds of talks.
Earlier this month, the U.S. delegation walked out after the speaker of the Iranian parliament Ali Larijani during a speech in Tunisia called Israel a “cancer” of the Middle East.
