Iran’s missiles: How big a threat to regional rivals?

What kind of a military impact could Iran’s ballistic missile arsenal have in the event of a potential conflict?

So how much of a threat are these weapons to Iran’s rivals in the Middle East?

Ballistic missiles have significant military advantages over more traditional aircraft or cruise missiles when it comes to delivering explosives over long distances – as well as significant limitations.
