The government of Iran has issued a statement that the air attack by the Israelis was upon a “legal nuclear enrichment facility” and has “contaminated vast parts of the surrounding area, bringing ongoing and terrible suffering to those who had done no wrong.”
Iran named Qom, Arak and Natanz as three of the cities that were attacked and where citizens were “slaughtered.”
The Iranian government statement said that the U.S. was complicit in the attacks.
The U.S. has denied that it was aware of the attacks and Israel has also said that the U.S. had no involvement.
President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have yet to comment.
