Spokesman of the Iranian Armed forces and the general of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Massoud Jazairi, attacked Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s statements during the second round of debates on Iran’s presidential election broadcasted on Friday, where Rouhani accused the Revolutionary Guards of working to break the nuclear agreement by continuing to develop and test the ballistic missiles and threaten the countries of the region.
“The development of Iran’s missile force comes within the framework of the general policies of the regime, and the presence of missile bases underground is a significant deterrent to the enemies’ threats,” Fares agency quoted what Jaziri said.
In a live interview on Iranian television, Rouhani said that “some displayed the range of ballistic missiles and wrote slogans on missiles in order to stop the nuclear agreement, in reference to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards who launched a rocket of 1400 kilometers, in March 2016, with Hebrew words on it: “Israel must be removed from existence.”
The ballistic missile was launched within missile maneuvers attended by Revolutionary Guards commander-in-chief Mohammad Ali Jafari and several senior Iranian military officials who repeatedly threatened all countries in the region.
Iran’s missile development program faces opposition from the United States and the European Union, which demands that Tehran should stop its “ballistic missile experiments.”
