Iran-Missile-Sejil

Supreme Leader's top advisor for the armed forces affairs, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said on Sunday that Iran is capable of firing a series of surface to surface
Sejil missiles.

The new generation of surface-to-surface missiles called 'Sejil' has increased the defense capability of the Iranian armed forces in dealing with any threats, he said.

The two-stage missile uses combined solid fuel and has a high speed which enables the Iranian armed forces to fire a series of them simultaneously if needed, he said.

It is the legitimate right of every nation to gain access to advanced technologies to defend its territory, he said.

Some countries in the southern parts of Persian Gulf are among top purchasers of weapons in the world but Iran with reliance on its military experts has developed indigenous technology to defend itself against threats posed by the US and the Zionist regime, he said.
