Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 25 /Trend S.Isayev, D. Khatinoglu/
Iran has launched four marine missiles yesterday, Navy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Rear-Admiral Ali Fadavi said, Fars reported.
Fadavi noted that the testing was carried out with missiles firing at navy targets, which were destroyed in 50 seconds.
Fadavi noted that Iran's missile range can reach out to all U.S. military bases in the Persian Gulf.
In the beginning of September, Fadavi said that the presence of the U.S. troops in Persian Gulf as "occupying" and said that Americans don't have right to strike Iran from their bases in the region and the occupied lands.
Yesterday Iran's Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said that both Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz are vitally important for Iran, and they will be protected at all costs.
