Tehran, July 10 (ANI): Iran has revealed that it secretly conducted missile tests in the Indian Ocean earlier this year, right under the nose of the United States.
Speaking on state TV, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the Revolutionary Guard's aerospace force, claimed Iranian rockets hit targets at the 'mouth of the Indian Ocean.
The Daily Mail quoted Hajizadeh, as saying that two missiles with a range of 1,140m each were fired from Semnan province in northern Iran during the Iranian month of Bahman, which runs from January 21 to February 19.
"This took place with the Americans present in the area. We allowed the American spy planes to be in the area but so far they have not said anything about it," he added.
Hajizadeh also threatened US aircraft carriers saying the 'moving targets' would be fired at if Iran came under attack.
Hajizadeh also claimed that Iran has acquired technology to build supersonic surface-to-sea missiles.
He did not elaborate, but defense analysts believe China has helped develop the anti-ship weapons.
Iran has earlier claimed that its arsenal is capable of striking 'remote regions outside the Persian Gulf'.
The country said it has the ability to produce missiles with an even greater range than those currently in its arsenal, but won't manufacture them because Israel and US bases are already within reach. (ANI)
