On October 31, the head of Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari told journalists that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has restricted the range of ballistic missiles developed in the country to 2,000 km. “Today, the range of our missiles, as the policies of Iran’s supreme leader dictate, are limited to 2,000 kilometers, even though we are capable of increasing this range,” said Jafari. “Americans, their forces, and their interests are situated within a 2,000 kilometer radius around us and we are able to respond to any possible desperate attack by them.”
