A senior commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says at the present time, US forces stationed in the Persian Gulf are in close range for the Iranian forces and “will be hit on the head” if they make a mistaken move.
Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Division, made the remarks on Sunday, when explaining the situation of the United States’ military bases in the region and the IRGC’s missile capability.
“If Americans make a [mistaken] move, we will hit them on the head.”
“This is the current state of affairs in the region…. It was not like this in the past. These [American forces] were previously a threat to us, but they are not an opportunity,” General Hajizadeh added.
The Iranian commander added that if the Americans say nothing about waging war against Iran it is because “they are vulnerable.”
The IRGC commander emphasized that Iran’s missiles are capable of targeting US vessels from a distance of 300 kilometers and the new missiles have an even enhanced range of 700 kilometers, which enables them to hit targets beyond the Persian Gulf.
