Iran commander says U.S. regional bases are in range of its missiles

LONDON (Reuters) - A commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said on Friday that U.S. regional bases and its aircraft carrier in the Gulf are within the range of Iranian precision-guided missiles.

“U.S. forces in the region were a threat, but they are now an opportunity (for Iran)... They do not talk about war with Iran, because they know how susceptible they are,” the head of the Guards’ aerospace division, Amirali Hajizadeh, said on state television.
