IRGC Commander Warns US about Dire Consequences of Aggression against Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) called on the US military officials to take Iran's warning seriously and avoid military threats to the Islamic Republic, cautioning that in case any Iranian is killed by the enemies, the country's Armed Forces will retaliate it by killing 10 American troopers.
"If you kill any of us, we will kill ten of you," Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh told FNA on Tuesday, referring to the presence of the US commanders and forces in Afghanistan, Iraq and other regional countries.
He also underlined that the Iranian Armed Forces and the IRGC forces are now at the highest level of readiness and are prepared to confront and give a crushing response to the enemies in any part of the country.
After the US and its Zionist ally intensified their war rhetoric against Tehran, Iranian commanders said that the US fleets of warships are no longer a threat to the Islamic Republic since the IRGC now enjoys the capability to hit all US vessels and bases in the region.
Iran has repeatedly warned that its Armed Forces are fully prepared to immediately deliver a crushing response to any offensive on Iranian territory.
Each year Iran displays part of its advancements in missile technology, but its Shahab 3 and Sejjil missiles have notably worried the Israeli regime.
The liquid-fuel Shahab 3 missile has a range of up to 1,250 miles (2000 kilometers) and is capable of carrying a 1,000-760 kilogram warhead.
But Sejjil, which is considered as the third generation of Iran-made long-range missiles, is a solid-fuel, two-stage missile with two engines. It is capable of reaching very high altitudes and therefore has a longer range than that of the Shahab 3 model.
The missile has boosted the Islamic republic of Iran's defense capabilities.
Yet, western military experts believe that half of Iran's missile capability is still unknown to the West, and that Tehran holds many aces up its sleeve.
The United States and Israel have once again intensified their hostile measures against Iran to push the country to give up its progress in the field of civilian nuclear technology.
Reports revealed in October that the US has delivered hundreds of bunker busters to the Israeli regime. Western military experts said that the device was given to the Zionist regime to help it target Iran's underground nuclear facilities.
Iran has, in return, warned that it would target Israel and its worldwide interests in case it comes under attack by the Tel Aviv.
