Iran Can Hit All Mobile Targets with Ballistic Missiles : Senior Commander

TEHRAN (FNA)- Lieutenant Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami underlined that Iran can hit and destroy all mobile targets with its ballistic missiles with 100 percent precision capability.

"I hold doubt if the US and Russia which once pioneered in the missile industry have this capability, but as far as our country is concerned I announce very decisively that we have made this achievement that we can hit all mobile targets with 100 percent success," Gen. Salami told Iran's state-run TV Saturday night.

He further reminded that Iran, for sure, enjoys the same capability with regard to fixed targets, and said, "In regard to other components of defense power, we are capable of attacking enemy's strategy and its vital interests in any place and at the same level that it acts."

"And we can act in a way that we will be in charge of escalation control," he added.

"When designing our strategy, we defined a radius of deterrence which encircles all the strategic interests of the enemy in the region to enable ourselves to manage the battle if a war breaks out," the IRGC lieutenant commander added.

In recent years, Iran has made giant progress in missile production. The Iranian Armed Forces always display the most modern home-made ballistic missiles during military parades in Tehran and other cities.

The most advanced long-range missile developed by Iran is Sejjil which is considered as the third generation of Iran-made long-range missiles.

Iran successfully tested second generation of Sejjil missiles and brought it into mass production in 2010.

The solid-fuel, two-stage Sejjil missile with two engines, is capable of reaching a very high altitude and therefore has a longer range than that of the Shahab 3 model.

The missile has boosted the Islamic republic of Iran's defense capabilities.
