Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 26
By Temkin Jafarov - Trend:
Iran has 14 underground missile bases, located at depths from 30 to 500 meters, said General Hassan Karimpour, chief adviser to the commander of troops of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).
The local news agency ISNA quoted Karimpour as saying Nov. 26 that the bases are equipped with everything necessary.
"If any country launched a missile towards Iran, the bases will carry out retaliatory strikes to all the important facilities in the aggressor country's territory," he stressed.
Karimpour also said that air defense systems are installed every 20 kilometers throughout Iran's territory.
"Today, there are 3,500 such systems, and once this figure rises to 5,500, no aircraft will be able to attack Iran," he added.
He also noted that, earlier a Hermes 450 drone was shot down in Iran's airspace. The drone fell near Natanz, where there is a nuclear facility.
In October this year, the IRGC for the first time opened the doors of an underground military base, located at a depth of 500 meters.
