Iran able to destroy US warships: cmdr.

TEHRAN, Jan. 25 (MNA) – A senior IRGC commander said although the US presence in the region was considered as a threat to Iran in the past, the country can now destroy the US ships, thanks to its deterrent power and missiles.

General Rahim Noei-Aghdam, the commander of IRGC's Hazrat Zeinab Military Base, made the remarks in an interview with Mehr News Agency on Monday.

Referring to the recent US moves in the Persian Gulf, General Noei-Aghdam said, "In the classification of world armies, the US military is a naval base, in other words, the total strength of the US military to operate and carry out missions outside the US is the US Navy, which includes warships, aircraft carriers, nuclear and non-nuclear."

"If once the US presence in the international waters near Iran was considered as a threat to the country, today thanks to our deterrent power and surface-to-surface, surface-to-air, surface-to-coast, coast-to-coast, coast-to-sea, and sea-to-sea missiles, we have the ability to destroy American ships," he added.

"In contrast to the American forces in West Asia, which are unable to act, the intelligence, mobility, fighting, power, strength, cohesion, unity and morale of the forces of the Resistance Front, especially the armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran, are well known," he noted.
