The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps could not be destroyed completely, not even by thousands of enemy bombs, IRGC commander Mohammad Ali Jafari was quoted by PressTV as saying on Tuesday.

“If today, the enemy…strikes us with thousands of bombs via a large number of sorties, [only] 10 to 20 percent of the IRGC’s missile capability might be destroyed," he said.

The IRGC commander added Tehran's missiles can reach Israel.

Jafari's remarks came in response to a comment made by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who said Iran's entire defense system could be rendered inefficient by one US bomb.
