Iran said that its powerful Revolutionary Guard has acquired missiles with multiple warheads, a step that it said is a major boost of its defense capabilities.

The claim by Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan is the latest reported advance in Iran's domestic missile production program.

He says Western sanctions have not stopped the Islamic Rebulic from augmenting its ability to deter its enemies from attacking it - a reference to Israel and the U.S.

His comments were posted on the Revolutionary Guard website on Wednesday.

Iran regularly announces breakthroughs in military technology that are impossible to independently verify. But the Pentagon released a rare public report in 2012 noting significant advances in Iranian missile technology, acknowledging an improvement in accuracy and firing capabilities.
