IRGC on Iran's ballistic missiles capabilities

Iran’s ballistic missiles are capable of hitting “carriers in the sea” with great precision, the commander of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards Corps, Brigadier General Hossein Salami said in a televised speech.

"These missiles can hit with great precision carriers in the sea … These missiles are domestically produced and are difficult to intercept and hit with other missiles," Reuters cited him as saying.

Salami said Iran’s ballistic missile technology had changed the balance of power in the Middle East. His comments followed attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week that added to already rising tensions between Tehran and Washington, which has increased its military presence in the region.
