Iranian Commander: Over 100,000 Hezbollah Missiles Ready to Hit Enemy Targets
“The Zionist regime will collapse in the near future. When Hezbollah has stockpiled over 100,000 missiles, it means Iran has tens of times more than that. Iran is in possession of different classes of missiles, and this power is unstoppable,” Salami told reporters Wednesday in the Central province of Qom where the second day of the main stage of the IRGC missile drills are being held.
“We have a large stockpile of ballistic missiles in different ranges. They are ready to hit enemies and targets from different parts of the country,” he added.
Noting that the Iran-made missiles are the product of sanctions, Salami said “the more sanctions, the greater our development.”
“If enemies decide to implement their evil deeds against Iran, they should know that our missiles are all set to launch and hit them,” he warned.
The IRGC began the main stage of its ballistic missile exercises on Tuesday.
Called ‘Eqtedar-e Velayat’, the command, tactical and special exercises are being conducted in the presence of IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari as well as Commander of IRGC Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.
The drills are meant to test advanced missile defense systems as well as showcase the deterrence power and the clout of the IRGC forces in defending the country’s territorial integrity against foreign threats.
The maneuvers are being held in different geographical locations, using ballistic missiles fired from silos.
In relevant remarks on Tuesday, General Jafari said the IRGC’s missile firings during the drills underway in Central Iran are a firm response to the embargoes against Iran’s missile defense program.
“Our enemies have realized that broader sanctions and security pressures have had little impact on our capabilities. That’s why they now seek to confine us in the missile field through economic sanctions,” General Jafari said on the sidelines of the main stage of the IRGC missile drills.
He said defense power and national security is Iran’s redline and non-negotiable, adding that the ballistic missile firings proved the IRGC’s silos are operational.
He further noted that “the security of Iran is the security of the region, and we will do our utmost to ensure our country’s security.”
“It is the enemies of the Islamic Revolution and regional security that should be afraid of the IRGC missiles,” he added.
