Top Iran commander admits to have built network of underground ‘missile cities’ along the Gulf coast

A top commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on Sunday claimed that Iran built underground “missile cities” all along its southern coast, warning its enemies.

The naval commander of Iran’s revolutionary guards, Rear Admiral Ali Reza Tangsiri said Iran has constructed so-called missile cities offshore. Adding that those sites contain surface-to-air missiles.

“Iran has established underground onshore and offshore missile cities all along the coasts of the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman that would be a nightmare for Iran’s enemies,” he told the Sobh-e Sadeq weekly.

Tangsiri also hinted at a new long-range missiles and naval vessels.

Tangsiri’s comments came following a mysterious fire at the Natanz nuclear site and another at a military complex that houses missile production facilities.

Israeli state TV reported that Israel was bracing for a possible Iranian retaliation if it determines Jerusalem was behind the Natanz explosion.
