Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force, said on Sunday that enemies will face Iran’s achievements on the day of the incident including devastation of foes at a distance of 1,500 kilometers, which of course is not accidental.

“There are many other [military] achievements, which will be unveiled in due time; for example, the ability to hit enemy [targets] at a distance of 1,500 kilometers,” the IRGC general said.

Hajizadeh, a key figure in Iran’s missile and drone programs crucial to Iran’s technological successes, gave a speech over the weekend that was discussed in Iranian media.

During a meeting with a group of esteemed religious scholars from the seminaries of Qom and Mashad, Brigadier-General Hajizadeh remarked that Iran's missile capability is superior to that of other countries.

General Hajizadeh recounted days that they both spared no opportunity to serve the country, saying “due to lack of having appropriate weaponry during Iran-Iraq war we could not pose a threat to Baghdad.”

Companies from Germany, the Netherlands and other Western countries also provided materials for building chemical weapons by Saddam Hussein’s regime. However, on those days Western countries even refused to sell barbed wire to Iran.

Iran’s Hajizadeh said over the weekend, “today, we are at the world level in the field of unmanned aircraft and drones, and our achievements have challenged the movements that the big and powerful armies of the world started working decades before us.

There are also many achievements that will come out on the day of any ‘incident’ if necessary, such as hitting the enemy at a distance of 1,500 kilometers.”
