A senior Iranian military commander was quoted as telling state media this week that the Islamic Republic has provided technological know-how to Hezbollah, Hamas, and other regional groups.

Revolutionary Guards Brig. Gen. Amir-Ali Hajizadeh told Press TV that Iran has been exporting missile technology to its allies fighting “the Zionist regime, [Islamic State], and other Takfiri groups.”

“By exporting the technology of manufacturing missiles and other equipment, Iran helped countries such as Syria, Iraq, and Palestine as well as Lebanon’s Hezbollah to stand up to and ground the Zionist regime, the ISIL and other Takfiri groups,” the Iranian commander said.

Hajizadeh, who commands the Revolutionary Guards’ aerospace division, said that Iran is capable of mass-producing short- and medium-range missiles.

The commander touts a series of domestically produced projectiles, including Khalij-e-Fars, Mehrab, Ra’d, Qader, Nour, and Zafar.
