TEHRAN (Dispatches) -- An Iranian general has warned that Iran’s missile arsenals are aimed at 21 American military bases in the Middle East and the country is prepared for "the greatest war against the greatest enemy”.
Noorollahi serves as a top adviser to the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Officers College.
"Iran is the world’s fourth (strongest) missile power after the U.S., Russia, and China,” he said.
Noorollahi said the NATO military alliance had warned that Iran could launch as many as 20,000 missiles per day, but that the number could actually be higher in a future conflict with the United States.
"Unfortunately, some Persian Gulf countries have become a military camp for our enemy. I must say this, 21 of their bases constitute targets for our missiles. NATO itself announced that Iran’s 110 missile bases and launching sites are capable of launching 20,000 missiles per day. This is what the enemy says. They only acknowledge part (of our capability). When a country reveals not only its underground missile bases but also its missile ‘cities’ to the enemy – this reflects readiness and capabilities.
"It means that we have capability to confront the greatest enemy,” he added, a reference to the U.S.
He said America’s regional allies were not Iran’s enemies, and reiterated that the Islamic Republic is capable of "razing” Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground.
"Saudi Arabia and the region’s countries are neither on our level nor are they our enemies. Our enemy is the (country) that came to Kuwait and built six large bases there. This enemy knows that if it transgresses… We do not want to cause harm to our neighbors unless we are forced to,” he said.
