Tehran deploys ‘massive’ number of missile launchers

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran has fielded a “massive” number of new long-range missile launchers, state TV reported Sunday.

The new weapon components delivered to Iranian military units would allow them to “crush the enemy” with the mass simultaneous fire of long-range surface-to-surface missiles, Defence Minister Gen. Ahmad Vahidi was quoted as saying.

TV showed footage of him inspecting two dozen launch trucks without missiles at an outdoor site. The report did not specify the type of missile that would be fired, nor more details on the number of launchers deployed.

Some of Iran’s surface-to-surface missiles are estimated to have ranges of over 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles), capable of hitting its arch-foe Israel and the US bases in the region.

Vahidi did not specify who was the “enemy” and said Iran would never start a war.
