TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A senior commander of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards says the Lebanese militant Shiite movement Hezbollah has dramatically improved its missile capabilities and can now pinpoint targets anywhere in Israel.

Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh says Israelis will see Hezbollah’s new might should a war break out. He says slain Hezbollah commander Hassan al-Laqis played a key role in boosting the group’s military strength, although he did not elaborate. The comments were posted on the Guard’s website, sepahnews.com, Saturday.

Al-Laqis was assassinated last month in southern Beirut, a blow to the Iranian-backed Hezbollah. Top Revolutionary Guard commanders attended a service earlier this week in Tehran in commemoration of the slain commander.
