Fmr. IRGC General: We Can Strike Regional Oil Centers at Any Time If the U.S. Makes a "Mistake"




Published on Aug 20, 2019

Former IRGC General Hossein Allahkaram, the head of the Ansar-e Hezbollah Coordination Council, said in a July 27, 2019 interview on Channel 5 TV (Iran) that Iran has a missile that is used by Hamas and that has a range of 70 kilometers, that cannot be detected by radar because of its non-ballistic trajectory, and that cannot be detected by the Star Wars system or be intercepted by other missiles. Allahkaram explained that this means that, at any given time and if the Americans make a "mistake," Iran can simultaneously strike multiple key oil centers in the region such as the Ahmadi region in Kuwait, the Dhahran areas in Saudi Arabia, and areas in the UAE. Allahkaram said that Iran is refraining from doing this because of its defense strategy, but that Iran is keeping with its "crisis escalation theory" by "escalating the crisis" with regard to nuclear, regional, and oil issues.
