Iran's supreme leader has restricted the range of ballistic missiles manufactured in the country to 2,000 kilometers, the head of the paramilitary Revolutionary Guard said Tuesday, which limits their reach to only regional Mideast targets.The Guard runs Iran's missile program, answering only to Khamenei.However, Jafari said he didn't believe there would be any war between Iran and the U.S.The Trump administration already sanctioned Iran for test-firing a ballistic missile in February, with then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn warning Tehran that Iran was "on notice".Iran long has insisted its ballistic missiles are for defensive purposes. The Gulf Arab states surrounding Iran, while hosting U.S. military bases, also fly sophisticated U.S. fighter jets that Iranian forces can't match.
