Iran Airs Unseen Footage of Secret Underground Missile BaseSalem-News.com Foreign Affairs
"The Islamic republic's long-range missile bases are stationed and ready under the high mountains in all the country's provinces and cities" - Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Islamic Republic's Revolutionary Guards' aerospace division
(RT / SALEM, Ore.) - For the first time ever, Iranian television has broadcast footage of a secret underground tunnel, stocked with missile and launcher units. Officials have stated that it is one of several such bases in the Islamic republic.
Located at a depth of 500 meters, under the mountains, the footage shows a very long tunnel which appears to be about 10 meters high.
It is one of many missile bases in Iran, according to the Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Islamic Republic's Revolutionary Guards' aerospace division.
"The Islamic republic's long-range missile bases are stationed and ready under the high mountains in all the country's provinces and cities," he said as quoted by the Guards' website.
"This is a sample of our massive missile bases," he said, adding that "a new and advanced generation of long-range liquid and solid fuel missiles" will replace the current weapons in 2016.
He issued a warning to anyone who might threaten Iran by suggesting that they had better “have a look at the Islamic republic's army options under the table."
