Former IRGC General Hossein Allahkaram, the head of the Ansar-e Hezbollah Coordination Council, said in a July 27, 2019 interview on Channel 5 TV (Iran) that Iran has a missile that is used by Hamas and that has a range of 70 kilometers, that cannot be detected by radar because of its non-ballistic trajectory, and that cannot be detected by the Star Wars system or be intercepted by other missiles. Allahkaram explained that this means that, at any given time and if the Americans make a "mistake," Iran can simultaneously strike multiple key oil centers in the region such as the Ahmadi region in Kuwait, the Dhahran areas in Saudi Arabia, and areas in the UAE. Allahkaram said that Iran is refraining from doing this because of its defense strategy, but that Iran is keeping with its "crisis escalation theory" by "escalating the crisis" with regard to nuclear, regional, and oil issues.
Hossein Allahkaram: We have a missile that is used by Hamas. This missile has a range of 70 kilometers, and it cannot be detected by radar because of its non-Ballistic trajectory. It does not leave the atmosphere and it therefore cannot be detected by the Star Wars [defense system], nor can it be intercepted by other missiles. Do you know what this means? It means that at any given time… If the Americans make a mistake, we can use our missiles with a range of less than 70 kilometers to hit oil centers that the world needs in the Ahmadi area [in Kuwait]… We targeted it in 1986 and the Americans surrendered. We can hit oil areas of Dharan [in Saudi Arabia], and areas in the UAE. Twenty million barrels of oil leave that area every day. We can hit them all at once. But we are not doing it, because of our defense strategy. So we are acting in keeping with the crisis escalation theory. We keep escalating the crisis more and more. On the nuclear issue, we have made ourselves clear. We keep escalating the crisis. We keep escalating the crisis in the regional issues as well, and we do it also with regard to the oil.
