A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corp. (IRGC) said today that Iran’s Shahab-3 missiles can hit enemy targets within 2,000 kilometer. Brig. Gen. Mohammad Hassan Kousehchi added that IRGC has such a good control over the Persian Gulf region that “no enemy can even think of invading Iran.” (Fars News Agency).
Media sources close to IRGC have reported that IRGC has some 600 Shahab-3 missiles aimed at US military installations in the region and Israeli targets. The Israeli officials have discounted the claim as propaganda to frighten the world away from thinking about possible military action against Iran.
