US Targets in Region Within Reach of Iran Missiles: IRGC General
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – All American military bases and vessels stationed up to 2,000 kilometers around Iran are within the range of Iranian missiles, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said.
“Everybody should know that all American bases and their vessels in a distance of up to 2,000 kilometers (from Iran borders) are within the range of our missiles,” General Hajizadeh said at a talk show on Saturday.
The commander also noted that after Iran shot down a US spy drone over the Persian Gulf in July, the IRGC Aerospace Force was on high alert in a way that Iranian missiles were zeroed in on Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar, Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates, and an American warship in the Sea of Oman. “We would have hit those targets if the US had shown a reaction.”
“We have constantly prepared ourselves for a full-fledged war,” the general added.
On June 20, the IRGC shot down a US spy drone that had violated the Iranian territorial airspace near the Kooh-e-Mobarak region in the southern province of Hormozgan.
The intruding drone was shot by Iran’s homegrown air defense missile system “Khordad-3rd”.
