Iran says it can attack enemy bases within a range of 2,000 km
In case of any aggression on Iran, the country's armed forces "would attack enemies' military bases within a range of 2,000 km," stressed Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Yahya Rahim-Safavi Saturday evening.
Speaking to a group of Basij (Volunteer) forces, the commander said that the Iranian armed forces "not only would not be stopped at the borders" but instead would attack enemies military bases within a range of 2,000 km. The IRGC's missile and artillery units are ready to counter any possible attack by enemies with their advanced defense equipment and technology, Safavi said, according to IRNA.
Meanwhile, the Islamic Consultative Assembly (Majlis) on Sunday approved a single-urgency bill to fingerprint the US nationals entering Iran. Based on the ratification, the government is duty-bound to "investigate and fingerprint all US nationals at the country's terminals and and when issuing visa in proportion to the US practice and attitudes."
Out of 225 MPs who were present in the session, a total of 171 deputies cast their votes. One hundred thirty-five voted in favor of the bill, 26 were against, and 10 abstained.
