Israel, US Bases within Iran Fire Range" Commander

“Although we are capable of increasing the range of our missiles, we don't think it would be necessary because today our extra-regional enemy -- the Zionist regime of [Israel] -- is within the range of our missiles,” Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Jafari was quoted by Fars News Agency as saying on Friday.

“As for the American forces -- if they were to back Israeli threats -- they would be closer to us than them (the Israeli) and [therefore,] they would be within the range of our firepower as well,” the IRGC commander added.

Brigadier General Jafari's comments come while Israel has on numerous occasions threatened to attack Iran and target its peaceful nuclear facilities.

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in the defense sector and has attained self-sufficiency in essential military equipment and systems.

On April 16, Iran announced that it has successfully test-fired another air-defense missile system dubbed Sayyad-2 (Hunter II).

The newly tested system is an upgraded version of the Sayyad-1 system with higher precision, range and defensive power and will be unveiled in the near future.

In January, Iran successfully test-fired mid-range, surface-to-air Hawk missile and the Iranian Defense Ministry delivered new cruise missile systems to the Navy.

The systems, designed and manufactured by Iranian experts, are capable of spotting and destroying different targets at sea.

The Navy has successfully test-fired a range of powerful missiles mounted with laser technology, which display high precision and have a range of 45 km (28 miles) to 300 km (186 miles).

Tehran has repeatedly assured that its military might poses no threat to other countries, saying its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
