Enemies seek to sabotage missile program: IRGC

Enemies seek to sabotage missile program: IRGC
A senior military commander says Iran's enemies are trying to sabotage its missile defense program, stressing that the program will not stop under any circumstances.

"They want to repeat their nuclear sabotage in the missile area," head of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Amirali Hajizadeh said.

He was apparently referring to recent US sanctions after Iran's testing of ballistic missiles and possibly the Stuxnet attack that sabotaged Iran's nuclear program in 2009 and 2010.

"The enemies are after neutering our defense capability through infiltration and sabotage," the general said, citing sanctions including on many ordinary parts of duel use.

Hajizadeh said Iran’s ballistic missile program will never stop under any circumstances.

The commander said some of the missiles carried 24 warheads and one ton of TNT.

He said Iran had no intention of starting a war, "but the Zionist regime is our enemy and we don't trust American officials."

"We have underground tunnels around the country and under mountains, where we store our missiles. These tunnels cannot be destroyed even if targeted by atomic bombs."
