Editor’s Note - The sabers continue to rattle, and now Iran claims its missiles can accurately reach our Fifth Fleet home port in Bahrain. They claim the missile is both accurate surface-to-surface, and sea – threatening the Straits of Hormuz and all shipping in the gulf.

He said that the domestically manufactured missile, which is equipped with an enhanced guidance system, is able to hit land and naval targets with pinpoint accuracy.
“In line with the policy to promote innovation and increase the accuracy of surface-to-surface missiles manufactured by the Defense Ministry, committed and dedicated experts at Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organization achieved this success through reliance on domestic capability and the use of indigenous technologies,” Vahidi noted.
He also said, “The armed forces will be able to hit and destroy land and naval targets, the gathering points of enemy (forces), command posts, missile sites, munitions depots, radar systems, and other targets with pinpoint precision using fourth-generation Fateh 110 missiles.”
In addition, he said, “All these capabilities are meant for defense and will be employed only against aggressors and those who threaten the interests and the territorial integrity of our country.”
