Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari says the underground missile cities displayed by the IRGC guarantee the security of Iranian industrial towns.
Addressing the graduation ceremony of IRGC cadets attended by the Leader of Iran’s Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, General Jafari said “Iranian people are pleased today that our [underground] missile cities guarantee the security of industrial towns in the country.”
His remarks seemed to be made in reaction to President Hassan Rouhani who criticized the IRGC for displaying underground missile cities and writing anti-Israeli slogans on missiles in an attempt to spoil the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.
Elsewhere in his remarks, General Jafari also noted that the IRGC feels duty-bound to help the deprived and poor people in Iran, according to a report by IFP.
“Ending poverty and deprivation is a major and fundamental goal [for the IRGC], just as targeting Haifa and Tel Aviv is,” he added.
