IRGC's latest missile exercise kicked off

Irans Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has launched a three-day military exercise, named the Great Prophet 7, to show the nations resolve and readiness, said the commander of the Aerospace Force of the IRGC.

In the exercise, various long, medium, and short-range domestically manufactured missiles stationed in various locations across the country will target simulations of the transregional forces airbases in the northern Semnan desert, Press TV quoted Commander of Iran's IRGC Aerospace Division Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh as saying on Sunday.

Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said that on the countrys latest missile achievements, the domestically designed surface-to-surface Qiam (Uprising) missile has been mass-produced and will be used during the war games.

Hajizadeh also added that a radar detector ballistic missile with the speed 3 times as many as sound's speed and with the range of 300 km is used by IRGC to target radar radiations centers, ISNA reported.

The early warning radar in Turkey, which is part of NATOs missile defense system, the proposed missile defense shield in the Persian Gulf, and Israels Iron Dome air defense system are vulnerable to the IRGCs new ballistic missile, he noted.

The message of the maneuvers to adventurist nations in the region and the West is that Iran will respond to any possible evil in a strong and crushing way, he pointed out

Warning against any invasion of the country, Hajizadeh addressed Israel, saying "if the Zionist regime (of Israel) makes a (wrong) move, they will give us an excuse to wipe them off the planet."
It should be mentioned that Israel and the United States will also conduct the largest-ever joint military exercise in which about 5,000 Israeli and U.S. troops are due to participate.
