Foreign gov’ts trying to incapacitate Iran’s missile program: IRGC general

Brigadier General Amirali Hajizadeh, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps' air force, alleged Thursday that enemies of the country are trying to sabotage Iran's ballistic missile development program. "They want to repeat their nuclear sabotage in the missile area," he said, referring to the Stuxnet virus that damaged critical components of Iran's nuclear program in 2009. Hajizadeh added that the missile program will not be stopped under any circumstances, saying "We have never accepted UN Security Council resolutions because these things are our red lines." Regarding this week's test-firing of ballistic missiles, Hajizadeh asserted some of them carried 24 warheads and one ton of TNT.
