UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Iranian missiles, even short-range ones, can reach US warships in the Persian Gulf, the deputy commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said on Friday, adding that the United States was unable to withstand a new war.

Tension between Iran and the United States is mounting, and concern over a possible conflict erupts at a time when Washington is tightening sanctions and political pressure on Tehran and intensifying its military presence in the region.

“Even our short-range missiles can easily reach US warships in the Persian Gulf,” Faris quoted Mohammad Saleh Jokar, deputy commander of the Revolutionary Guard for Parliamentary Affairs, as saying.
