Iran has said that U.S. bases in Afghanistan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and American aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf are within range of its missiles, according to a report.
Citing the Tasnim news agency, Reuters reports that the comments were made Wednesday by an Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander. “They are within our reach and we can hit them if they (Americans) make a move,” said Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guards’ airspace division.
The commander said that the missiles have improved precision and could hit the Kandahar base in Afghanistan, Al Udeid Airbase in Qatar and Al Dhafra base in the UAE.

The 2015 deal, which was forged by former President Barack Obama, gave Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program, which many believed it was using to develop atomic weapons.
