Iranian President Hassan Rouhani visits a defense show in Tehran

A senior Iranian cleric warned the United States on Wednesday that if it attacks Iran, its allies in the region including Israel would be targeted.

"The price of war with Iran is very high for America", Khatami told worshippers at Eid prayers in Tehran, Reuters reported.

He said that during the imposed war on Iran by Saddam's regime of Iraq, the Americans wanted to negotiate with Iran but their dream never came true.

In a speech Tuesday, Rouhani called on the Iranian military to strengthen its readiness in the face of enemy threats.

The US Department of State's electronic communication team refuted on its twitter account, Iran's "lie" about the new fighter jet it said it had recently produced.

Washington imposed new sanctions in August, targeting Iran's auto industry, trade in gold and other precious metals, and purchases of US dollars.

Stressing that Iran's doctrine prohibits any aggression against others, the president said Iran has assisted its neighbors in the fight against terrorism on a voluntary basis, and has played a vital role in fighting off terrorism.

Iran has unveiled its first homemade fighter jet this morning - and boasted that the USA would not dare attack the country because of its "power".

Last week, Khamenei - who has the ultimate say on Iranian policy - said the United States would avoid outright conflict because of Iranian military might.

Ofir Gendelman, Arabic language spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, tweeted a comparison of the two planes and noted that the Kowsar was "in fact the same old 50-year-old American fighter f-5".

Iran has sent weapons and thousands of soldiers to Syria to help prop up regime leader Bashar al Assad's forces, but had to rely on Russian Federation for aerial support due to its own lack of a powerful air force.

Iran's functional air force has been limited to perhaps as few as a few dozen strike aircraft, either Russian or ageing United States models including F-5s that were acquired before the 1979 Iranian revolution.

Rouhani further called on the Iranian nation "to prepare itself against people and powers, which have greedily set their sights on the country's territory, resources and sensitive geographical position", Rouhani said.
