Commander of Aerospace Force of the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (IRGC), Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, announced that Tehran will soon test its first ballistic surface-to-surface missile known as “Dezful”.

He stressed that due to the efforts made in the past few years, IRGC managed to launch a third underground ballistic missile factory, adding Iran will continue to further strengthen its defense capabilities (which also helps promoting its defense industry), noting the missiles are being developed entirely on domestic level, production, design, engineering, raw materials and fuel including.

Brigadier General Hajizadeh’s speech was delivered on the occasion of anniversary of the liberation of Khorramshahr, a city in Khuzenstan province, during the time of Iran-Iraq war.

He also said Iran does not feel threatened by the new US-Saudi arms deal, nor by any other form of boosting military capacities by foreign states in the region, adding the newly purchased US arms by Saudi Arabia will sooner or later end up in the hands of the forces, known to be hostile to Israel. 

“Our enemies repeatedly say we must cease our development of missiles, only because they fear us and want us to be weak. They do not like us being strong and advanced”, Hajizadeh was heard saying.
