Iran’s air force commander said Tuesday, December 11 that the distance between Iran and Israel is the maximum range that Tehran requires its missiles fly, The Times of Israel reported. “We don’t need missiles with more than a 2,000-kilometer range, even though have the technology to build them,” Hajizadeh told reporters. “Israel is our longest-range target.” Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh made the statement in response to a U.S. intelligence report revealed last week that claimed Tehran is no longer on track to achieve an intercontinental missile by 2015. According to the report penned by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service, it is increasingly tough for Tehran to obtain certain critical components and materials because of international sanctions related to its disputed nuclear program.
