IRGC Commander: Iran Can Expand Range Of Ballistic Missiles
Iran has the ability to build ballistic missiles with a broader range, a senior commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps said Monday, Fars News agency reported.
Iran’s missiles currently cover a range of 2,000 kilometers and many "enemy bases" are within 800 kilometers of the Islamic Republic, head of the Revolutionary Guards' airspace division Amirali Hajizadeh was cited as saying.
"We have the ability to build missiles with a broader range," Hajizadeh said, according to Fars News. He added, "We don’t have limitations from a technical perspective or by conventions with regard to missile range."
Last month, Hajizadeh said that US bases in Afghanistan, the UAE and Qatar, and US aircraft carriers in the Gulf were within range of Iranian missiles.
In October, the IRGC fired missiles at Daesh [the Arabic acronym for ‘ISIS/ISIL’] terrorists in Syria after the group took responsibility for an attack at a military parade in Iran that killed 25 people, nearly half of them members of the Guards.
