iranThe Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s military power could not be destroyed even by thousands of enemy bombs, IRGC commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari says.

“If today, the enemy…strikes us with thousands of bombs via a large number of sorties, [only] 10 to 20 percent of the

IRGC’s missile capability might be destroyed. Furthermore, the IRGC’s military might is not limited to its missile power, but it is a strategic power for the [Islamic] Establishment,” the general said on Tuesday.

Jafari’s remarks come against the backdrop of controversial remarks attributed to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif that the United States can render the entire defense system of Iran ineffective with a single bomb.

The general said Zarif’s remarks are “incorrect” because the foreign minister “lacks military experience and expertise.”

“We consider him a seasoned and experienced diplomat, but he has no experience in military affairs and this is why he has made this remark,” Jafari said.

He noted that the IRGC’s missiles have Israel within reach, adding, “We can still upgrade the range of [our] missiles, but for the time being, on the order of Leader [of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei], we have limited the range of our missiles to 2,000 kilometers.”

On Sunday, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said Iran’s military experts have enhanced the precision of domestically-designed and manufactured long-range and ballistic missiles to the level that the projectiles can strike targets with pinpoint accuracy.

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and has attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.

Tehran has repeatedly assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to other countries since the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is based entirely on deterrence.
