Senior Military Advisor to Leader

Tehran (IP) - General Hossein Dehghan, former Iranian Defense Minister, said Iran would increase the range of its missiles in response to the types of threats, warning enemies of the consequences of any hostile act.

Iran Press/Iran News: Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan, a military adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, in an interview with Yemeni al-Masirah TV, said: "Any hostile move will be met with a tough and practical response at due time and place so the enemy will no longer repeat its move."

"Iran is fully prepared to face any threat or aggression, and our forces are monitoring all hostile movements," General Dehghan warned the enemies. 

The former Iranian defense minister called Iran's missile power a red line and said: "This issue cannot be negotiated. That is it."

"Increasing the range of Iranian missiles is related to threats, and we increase the range of our missiles according to the types of threats we face," the military adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Republic further added.

He went on to say that Iran sees no restrictions on developing its weapons apart from weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), which it does not seek to acquire.

General Dehghan, about recent sabotage at Natanz nuclear site, said: "It does not matter who claims responsibility or denies the attack on Natanz. What matters is that the attack took place within the framework of the Hebrew-Arab-American triangle and that the United States cannot deny responsibility for it." 

Gen. Dehghan also pointed to recent attacks against Iranian ships, saying that the enemies sought "to create an atmosphere of tension and war, and if there is a reaction from the other side, that would be a natural reaction."
