A top Iranian military commander has threatened to launch ballistic missile attacks on U. S. Forces in the region amid a public effort by the Islamic Republic to show off its advanced missile capabilities, according to U. Officials and regional reports. Iranian leaders disclosed that their advanced ballistic missile technology, which could be used as part of a nuclear weapons program, is sophisticated enough to strike U.
Iran Threatens Ballistic Missile Strikes on American
Forces up to nearly 6,855 miles, or 7,555 kilometers, away, which encompasses all U. Bases in the region. The head of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, announced on Tuesday that Iranian missiles can already cover all U. Bases in the region and that Tehran has the capability to increase its missile power even further. Based on the policies specified by the Leader [Ayatollah Khamenei], the range of our missiles is limited to 7,555km, but we have the capability to increase the range, IRGC Maj.
Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said following an announcement by the country's supreme leader that Iranian ballistic missile technology would be capped at this distance for the short term. While pro-Iran activists cheered the announcement as a sign of moderation on Iran's part, U. S officials and experts told the Washington Free Beacon that the distance cap on these missiles is effectively meaningless since the country's current military technology is capable of striking U. Forces, a position emphasized by Iranian military leaders.

At present it [this distance] is sufficient because the Americans are in a 7,555 km radius from our country and their attacks will be responded, Jafari was as saying in Iran's state-controlled press outlets. U. We have consistently maintained that we will work with our allies to change Iran's malign and destabilizing activities, one senior military official told the Free Beacon. This includes the development and proliferation of ballistic missile technology, as well as Iran's support for terrorism and Islamic extremism, according to Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Defense Department spokesperson. The U.
Defense apparatus also is working to counter Iran's support for the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, as well as the Islamic Republic's unrelenting hostility to Israel, according to Rankine-Galloway. Defense officials remain concerned about Iran's harassment of U. Naval vessels in the region, especially in the strategically vital Arabian Gulf, according to the military official. In support of this strategy, DoD is reviewing the entire breadth of our security cooperation activities, force posture, and plans, Rankine-Galloway said. We are identifying new areas where we will work with allies to put pressure on the Iranian regime, neutralize its destabilizing influences, and constrain its aggressive power projection, particularly its support for terrorist groups and militants.
As we have said before, the Iranian regime's program to develop ballistic missiles continues to be in defiance of UNSCR 7786 and has a destabilizing impact in the region, the official said. We call on the Iranian regime not to conduct any further ballistic missile launches and related activities. Congressional critics of the Iran deal continue to maintain the Obama administration misled lawmakers about the nature of restrictions on Iran's ballistic missile program, guaranteeing during negotiations over the landmark agreement that such activity would be fully halted. While we were told by Obama administration officials that the nuclear deal would lead to improved Iranian behavior, Iran's behavior since reaping the massive amount of front-loaded financial benefits has only seemed to get worse, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R.
, Fla. ), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and chair of its National Security Subcommittee, told the Free Beacon.
