Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has simulated using ballistic missiles to destroy hangars housing the Israeli regime’s United States-procured F-35 warplanes.

The simulation took place during an exercise that was carried out by the Corps on Tuesday on the occasion of the National Guards Day, Iran’s Tasnim News Agency reported.

The drill saw the IRGC firing enhanced versions of its Emad and Qadr ballistic missiles against the F-35 hangars located inside a mock-up of the occupying regime’s Palmachim Airbase.

The ballistic missiles used during the drill boasted enhanced explosive nosecones as well as increased range and precision.

According to Tasnim, the enhanced version of the Emad liquid-fuel missiles struck the targets lying 1,700 kilometers (1056 miles) away with a margin of error of less than four meters.

Located 12 kilometers (seven miles) south of the city of Tel Aviv on the Mediterranean coast, Palmachim Airbase serves as the main facility housing the regime’s much-vaunted F-35 aircraft.

Speaking at the same airbase last month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu allegedly threatened the Islamic Republic with military action.

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly warned that it would never initiate a military action against another party, but would respond decisively and with its utmost power in case it came under attack.

Earlier this month, a senior IRGC commander warned the Israeli regime that endangering the Islamic Republic’s interests anywhere in the world would not go unanswered.

Brigadier General Abbas Nilforoushan, the IRGC’s deputy commander for operations, said, “This fake regime knows very well that it has received the answer to its evils daily. Whenever we decide, we will not hesitate to protect our interests and the Islamic Revolution, respond to Israeli acts of mischief with great force, and preserve the blood of our martyrs.”
