Iran officer says missiles designed to reach Israel: ISNA

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran’s medium-range ballistic missiles are designed to be able to hit Israel, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards’ missile battery was quoted as saying on Wednesday as the Guards test-fired two missiles.

“The reason we designed our missiles with a range of 2000 km (1,200 miles) is to be able to hit our enemy the Zionist regime from a safe distance,” Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by the ISNA agency.
