Top Iranian Commander: US Bases in Region Easy Targets for Our Missiles
The Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh warned the US military bases and aircraft carriers around Iran are soft targets for the precision missiles in the IRGC’s possession
Speaking at a TV show on Wednesday night, the top Iranian General said the IRGC has focused on improving the precision of its missiles since ten years ago.
Hajizadeh stressed that Iran owes the high precision of its projectiles to Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s guidance.
He also said that all US military bases in the region are within the range of Iran’s missiles, saying the Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar and the Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates are at a distance of below 300 kilometers from Iran and the Kandahar base used by Americans is only 400 km away from Iran.
Those bases are soft targets for Iran and will be hit if the enemy makes a wrong move, he added.
The general also pointed to Iran’s missile dominance over the sea, saying the IRGC has acquired naval missiles with a range of 700 kilometers that could be used over the Sea of Oman.
“US aircraft carriers [in the region] are like shooting targets for us,” General Hajizadeh added.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the country will not hesitate to strengthen its military capabilities, including its missile power, which are entirely meant for defense, and that Iran’s defense capabilities will be never subject to negotiations.
