TEHERAN - Iran has a vast warehouse full of cruise missiles with hidden locations in a network of secret bunkers on mountains and underground bases. The government of the Mullahs' country dubbed the missile warehouse the "Missile Cities" or "Underground Missile Cities".

The weaponry is ready for Iran to use if the enemy makes a mistake. The "Missile City" is controlled by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The commander of Iran's IRGC Digantara Division, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, confirmed the arsenal was loaded with cruise missiles. "We have to protect our arsenal adequately. The idea goes back to 1984, right when we started making missiles," he said.

"Before the first material of this type was imported into this country, we had already started digging tunnels to hide it," he said.

"Right now, it's called the 'Missile City', deep in the mountains, highly sophisticated tunnels are dug (underground) to store ammunition, and hide missile launch bases and other instruments, as well as responsible personnel.

"Our enemies are worried because these places are out of their reach. If the enemy makes a mistake, the missile base will erupt like a volcano from the depths of the Earth," he said.

It is estimated that there are more than 10 secret bases that hide Iranian missiles with a range of up to 1,200 miles.

Footage of the "Missile City" footage has been broadcast by Iranian television stations at a time when tensions between Washington and Tehran are heating up. Television broadcast video shows one of the largest of several underground military bases fortified with reinforced concrete and rocket-laden.

One of Iran's mainstay missiles is the Shahab-3 missile known as the "Shooting Star". This weapon can launch chemical warheads on a target about 620 miles away.

Iranian officials are believed to have purchased missiles from North Korea, which developed weapons with the aim of attacking US targets from the Korean Peninsula.

Western intelligence chiefs had long suspected that Tehran was moving major infrastructure, weapons systems and military equipment to underground secret bunkers and mountain hideouts.

In another gruesome development, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called on the IRGC to develop more advanced and modern weapons.

In his address at the Imam Hussein Military University in Tehran, he said; "The Guards must have sophisticated and modern weapons. Your weapons must be modern and updated. This must be developed domestically. You need to develop and produce your weapons. "

"Today the Guard has a strong presence inside and outside Iran. "America's hostile approach has enhanced the Guardian's dignity," he said referring to Iran's IRGC
