Iran test-fired missiles capable of reaching Israel.
Iranian forces test-fired nine missiles, including a long-range Shehab-3, as part of a large-scale war game Wednesday.
Israel and U.S. assets in the Persian Gulf are within Shehab range.
Hossein Salami, a commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, said in a televised address that “thousands” of missiles are ready for firing in a real war.
Independent analysts, however, believe that Iran has a few dozen long-range missiles in its arsenal.
The war game contributed to world jitters over the possibility that Israel or the United States could attack Iranian nuclear sites pre-emptively.
