Iranian Guard: All of Israel Now Within Hezbollah's Missile Reach

An Iranian Revolutionary Guard officer on Saturday said all Israeli territory is now within reach of Hezbollah-held missile technology, the Associated Press reports.

"Hezbollah's capability has improved so tremendously in recent years that it can hit and destroy any target in the occupied lands with very little inaccuracy and pinpoint ability," Iranian Revolutionary Guard Aerospace Division commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh said in comments published on the Revolutionary Guard's website.

U.S. officials this month said they believed the Lebanon-based militant organization might have obtained advanced ballistic missiles from Syria and Iran.

The alleged transfers into Lebanon include Scud D missiles, which are reported to have a range of roughly 435 miles. Shipments might also include the shorter-distance Scud C.
