Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh has said that Iran has the missiles produced to attack Israel.
The Iranian General announced Iran’s plans to supply the IRGC forces with a large number of various types of Zolfaqar missiles.
“The new Zolfaqar missile is introduced to the IRGC Aerospace Force and a large number of this missile will be supplied to our units by the end of the year,” General Hajizadeh told FNA on Tuesday.
The Iranian top military official was asked if Iran has any plans to develop missiles to hit targets over 2,000 km in range, and he said, “Our target is Israel and we don’t need missiles with a range of over 2,000 km.”
The missiles were test fired on the sidelines of the main stage of the IRGC drills in Central Iran and various areas of the country.
One missile had a message written on it that said in Hebrew: “Israel should be wiped off the earth”.
Two home-made ‘Qadr H’ ballistic missile was fired from the Eastern Alborz Mountains at a target in Iran’s Southeastern Makran seashore in March.
Qadr is reportedly a 2000km-range ballistic missile which can reach territories as far as Israel.
Also on Sunday, Iran started mass-production of Zolfaqar missile that can hit targets in distances up to 700 km in range.
