TEHRAN (FNA)- The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Tuesday rained down its long-range Shahab missiles on a hypothetical enemy base in Iran's Lut Desert on Tuesday.
The move was part of the main phase of the massive missile wargames, codenamed Payambar-e Azam 7 (The Great Prophet 7), underway throughout Iran.
The IRGC missiles are raining down on this single target which is a replica of an enemy air base. These missiles are fired from various platforms throughout the country, and all hit the target with 100 percent precision.
The IRGC Aerospace Force started massive missile wargames by firing tens of short, mid and long-range missiles from bases across the country at a single target in central Iran.
The IRGC units fired tens of Shahab 1, 2 and 3, Fateh, Qiyam, Persian Gulf and Zelzal missiles at a hypothetical enemy air base - which IRGC officials had earlier said is a replica of the air bases of the trans-regional powers (the US) - in Iran's Lut Desert simultaneously.
Although Iran frequently holds wargames, these exercises appeared to underline Tehran's threat to strike US military bases in the neighboring countries - in Afghanistan, Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia - if it comes under attack by Israel or the United States.
Tel Aviv and Washington have long threatened to attack Iran.
IRGC commanders said the wargames would "test the accuracy of missile warheads and systems" by hitting the mock camps in the Kavir Desert in central Iran.
