Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards fired 14 missiles in an exercise Tuesday, one of them a medium-range weapon capable of striking Israel or US targets in the Gulf, state media said.
The Guards’ aerospace commander, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, insisted Iran’s missile programme posed no threat to European nations but was merely intended to provide defence against Israel and US forces in the Gulf.
“Today, on the second day of the exercise, we fired Zelzals (Quake), Shahabs (Meteors) 1 and 2, and the Ghadr (Power),” a medium-range missile which is a modified version of the Shahab-3, Hajizadeh told state television.
He said the missiles were not a threat to European nations.
“Iran’s missiles have a maximum range of 2,000 kilometres (1,250 miles) and are designed to reach US targets in the region and the Zionist regime,” the official IRNA news agency quoted him as saying.
