Iran can destroy American Warships and Bases within 2,000 kilometres?
TEHRAN - A top commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the US military bases in the region as well as its warships and other vessels are within reach of Iranian missiles up to a radius of 2,000 kilometers.
Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the IRGC's Aerospace Division, made the remarks in a televised talk show on Sunday.
“In addition to US bases in the region, we have all their vessels, including aircraft carriers and warships, under fire of our missiles to a radius of 2,000 kilometers, and are constantly monitoring them,” the Iranian commander said.
He added, "They (Americans) thought that they could get out of our range of [missile] fire if they stand 400 kilometers away [from Iran's territorial waters]. However, no matter where they are, if a conflict is ignited, their warships will be first to be targeted by our fire."
In August, Hajizadeh said that Iran ranked first in the field of missile technology among the Middle Eastern countries and stood superior at a global level. [image: PressTV-'Iran’s missile power ranks first in Mideast'] link
“Today, we rank first in the missile technology at the regional level and are placed among the few global powers in this regard,” he said.
Elsewhere in his Sunday remarks, the IRGC commander emphasized that the US is not in conditions, "but we are pessimistic about the future and are always ready for a the great war."
