A top Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) commander has revealed that Iran has upgraded its ballistic missile capacity to the point of striking moving targets with pinpoint accuracy.

Iran’s Deputy IRGC Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami further elaborated in Saturday remarks that although it  may appear scientifically impossible, only Russia, besides the Islamic Republic, is likely to possess such technology and even the US does not possess the technology.

“Our ballistic missiles are capable of destroying moving targets with pinpoint precision,” Salami insisted.

The Iranian commander also said that Iran’s military has improved its air defense system but declined to disclose further details due to the confidential nature of the issue.

Iran has repeatedly assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to other countries and that its defense doctrine is based entirely on deterrence.

On May 30, Salami said Iran is capable of targeting strategic interests of the enemy at any location across the globe in case of any act of aggression against the Islamic Republic.


The remarks came following recent aggressive statements by US President Barack Obama against Iran.

In an address at the US Military Academy in West Point, New York, on May 28, Obama said there is an opportunity to resolve disputes over Iran’s nuclear energy program but reiterated that Washington reserves “all options” against Iran, alluding to military action.

Subsequently, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri warned that any US act of aggression against Iran will sound the death bell for the Israeli regime and see war engulfing the United States.
