“If one facility is destroyed, we will respond proportionately ten times whatever you give, the corresponding response will not be limited to the Delta, it may be with your politicians or with your rulers.
“We will launch three rockets launchers and ballistic missiles at any facility of our choice as a warning in seven days, if you make bold your threats.
