Top commander: Iran’s missile power acts as deterrence force

IRNA– Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri underlined that Iran’s missile power prevents the enemies from even thinking of attacking the country.

‘Given the guidelines of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei our missile strength has reached a point that does not even allow the enemies to think of attacking the country,’ General Baqeri said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran on Thursday.

Noting that the Russians have been seeking Iran’s assistance in building the long-range drones with such a precision-striking power, he said, ‘Of course, the Americans and the Zionists might be in possession of such drones.’

In relevant remarks in late September, Major General Baqeri underlined the country’s high capabilities in building different military equipment, and said the Iran-made long-range drones are now carrying out missions against terrorists in Iraq and Syria.

‘The long-range drones which can precisely hit targets with a one-square-meter cross section is not possessed by many, but this is being done there (in Iraq and Syria),’ General Baqeri said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran.

Iran in August unveiled a new home-made drone which is capable of jamming the enemies’ communication systems.

In addition to the drone, other UAVs with the capability of taking images and footages and jamming enemy drones’ camera and surveillance systems as well as a drone equipped with destructive laser weapons were unveiled in the exhibition.
