The Iranian Defense Ministry has delivered a massive consignment of domestically made ballistic missiles to the armed forces.
During the handover ceremony on Wednesday, the Qadr, Qiam, Fateh 110, and Khalij-e-Fars (Persian Gulf) ballistic missiles as well as Mersad air defense system, all designed and produced by the aerospace division of the Defense Ministry, were delivered to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and the Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base.
At the ceremony, Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan told reporters that his ministry continues to advance the country’s deterrence and defense capabilities.
The delivery, General Dehqan said, proves that the enemies’ various sanctions, which were strictly imposed on the defense sector, could not even slightly affect it.
He added that the missiles are able to precisely hit and destroy the enemy’s targets.
