Iran has said that US bases in Afghanistan, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and American airlines in the Persian Gulf are within the reach of their missiles, according to a report.
Referring to the news agency Tasnim, Reuters reports that the comments were made Wednesday by an Iranian Revolutionary Guards Commander. “They are within reach and we can beat them if they (Americans) do a move,” said Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guards Airspace Department.
The commander said the missiles have improved the accuracy and could beat the Kandahar base in Afghanistan, Al Udeid Airbase in Qatar and the Al Dhafra base in the UAE.

Trump repeatedly condemned the deal as the “worst ever” negotiated by the United States and said it gave too much in return to Iran in return for little.

Just before the latest sanction was introduced to Iran, President Trump tweeted a “Game of Thrones” -inspired meme. “Penalties are coming. On November 5th,” it reads and plays on the comic show’s famous “Winter Coming” game.
The tweet was retweeted more than 65,000 times and got over 199,000 likes. However, the meme was beat by some cast of thrones cast members, like the author of the box series.
