Iranian Guard Official: Our Missiles Can Already Reach U.S. and Israeli Bases

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- A senior Revolutionary Guard commander says Iran is capable of producing even longer range missiles than the ones it has now but won't make them because Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf are already within its reach.

Amir Ali Hajizadeh says the Guard's arsenal includes missiles with a range of up to 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers), which puts Israel, U.S. bases in the Persian Gulf and parts of southeastern and eastern Europe within Iran's reach.

Hajizadeh claimed on Tuesday that Iran "possess the technology" but has "no intention of producing" the missiles with the over-2,000-kilometer range. He gave no details.

The Guard on Monday kicked off 10 days of war games, its latest show of military force amid a standoff with the West over Iran's nuclear program.
