Israeli and US-developed missile shields are no match for Iranian missiles, a senior military advisor to the Islamic Republic's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei said Wednesday.

Calling missile defense systems protecting Israel "inefficient," Iranian Maj.-Gen. Seyyed Yahya Rahim-Safivi asserted that "the entire land of Palestine" is within range of Tehran's current arsenal of long-range missiles, official Iranian news agency IRNA reported.

The senior Iranian military advisor added that the Revolutionary Guard is closely following war games taking place in the region, specifically a joint US-Israeli exercise.
