Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps test-fired two ballistic missiles on Wednesday, Reuters said. Iran’s state television showed footage of two Qadr missiles being launched from northern Iran which the IRGC said hit targets 1,400 km (870 miles) away.
“The reason we designed our missiles with a range of 2,000 km is to be able to hit our enemy the Zionist regime from a safe distance,” Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by the ISNA agency. The nearest point in Iran is around 1,000 km (621 miles) from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
