Tehran - Iranian Commander: Our Missiles Can Penetrate The Iron Dome

Tehran - Iranian missiles can penetrate the Iron Dome rocket-defense system, Brig.-Gen. Masoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of the Iranian armed forces said Thursday, according to Iranian news agency Fars.

“There is no iron dome in the world that we cannot pierce through,” Fars quoted him as saying. “What is said about this dome (the Iron Dome) is mostly psychological warfare and propaganda.”

He also labelled Israeli threats to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities as psychological warfare, contending that the IDF lacks the military capability to attack the Islamic Republic.

Jazayeri further accused Israel of having “serious vulnerabilities,” and warned that an Israeli decision to strike Iran could lead to the Jewish state’s annihilation.

Last month, Fars quoted an Iranian military official as saying that the incursion by an unmanned aircraft into Israeli airspace exposed the weakness of Israeli air defenses.

The Israeli air force shot down a drone after it crossed into southern Israel, the military said, but it remained unclear where the aircraft had come from.

Jamaluddin Aberoumand, deputy coordinator for Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, said the incident indicated that Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile defense system “does not work and lacks the necessary capacity”, Fars news agency reported.

The Iron Dome system, jointly funded with the United States, is designed to shoot down short-range guerrilla rockets, not slow-flying aircraft. It intercepted more than 80 percent of the targets it engaged in March when nearly 300 rockets and mortars were fired at southern Israel, the Pentagon said at the time.

Hey Iran, Israel actually has nuclear weapons which could wipe your country off the map 1000 times over. You on the other hand are trying to create nuclear weapons which is why Israel will ultimately have no other option but to hit you hard and yes where it hurts most.

Well, if you consider that the Iron Dome warhead would probably not detonate on cardboard, I guess you could say the Iranians can penetrate the Iron Dome.

These jerks are legends in their own minds.
