Iran airs footage of underground missile arsenal

October 15, 2015

TEHRAN - Iran has for the first time aired footage of one of its underground missile arsenals.

The IRIB was permitted to enter a base located 500 meters below the ground and record pictures there on Wednesday.
Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said during the visit that “Iranian missiles of varying ranges are ready to be launched from underground bases once Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei orders to do so.”

He underlined that Iran has built many missile arsenals throughout the country at depths of 500 meters.

“We are not worried if the enemies of the Islamic Revolution use the newest and most advanced generations of satellites and spying equipment,” Hajizadeh added.

He further said that Iran plans to replace the current home-made missiles with new generations of long-range, advanced missiles, which run on liquid and solid fuel.

Those who threaten Iran with their military option on the table would better take a look at Iran’s “options under the table,” namely the missile arsenals.
