“Along with improving our defense capabilities, we will continue our missile tests and missile production. The next missile to be produced is a surface-to-surface missile,” the Iranian commander said. The new missile series will be named “Dezful,” after the site of the largest tank battle in the Iran-Iraq War. According to Hajizadeh, the name is meant to convey Iran’s commitment to avoiding ground wars by achieving missile superiority over its regional rivals.
