(PresidentialHill.com)- According to the Iranian Army Ground Forces commander, his nation now has a drone that can fly to two of Israel’s biggest cities.
According to Brigadier General Kioumars Heidari, the Arash 2 drone was explicitly made to target Tel Aviv and Haifa, according to the Iranian Mehr News Agency. The military was awaiting orders to begin utilizing the drones, he added.
Heidari stated that they have drones with a strategic range as well as a drone with a range of 2,000 kilometers [1,243 miles].” Of course, we also have drones in our arsenal with shorter ranges,” said Heidari.
Tehran is not more than 1,200 miles from either Tel Aviv or Haifa.
Heidari said the Arash 2 has a spotter that ideally enables it to hit its target.
The state-owned news agency added that the drone is outfitted with search systems in addition to other special skills that will allow it to recover itself repeatedly until it strikes the target, the state-owned news agency added.
The Brigadier General also discussed the Shafaq missiles, tested alongside the Arash 2 drones last week during a two-day exercise in central Iran, when he talked on Iranian television on Sunday night.
According to a news article, the Shafaq missile, carried by combat helicopters, has a professional camera and the capacity to “shoot and forget”—the pilot can change course immediately after firing.
Iran’s new weaponry has come to light as its officials consider signing a new nuclear agreement.
According to reports, a new agreement would allow Iran to unlock millions of dollars in assets it plans to utilize to boost its regional terror operations and missile systems.
Israel and the US conducted a joint simulation training exercise this summer as part of ongoing efforts to defend Israel from ballistic threats.
Israeli officials stated on Sunday that their country does not expect the nuclear agreement to be renewed before the November midterm elections in the United States.
Israel has been advocating against the reentry requested by the current U.S. administration, much like it did when it backed then-President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from a 2015 Iranian nuclear deal that it believed to be too restrictive.
After Iran attempted to tie renewal of the agreement to the end of U.N. watchdog investigations into uranium traces at three of its nuclear sites, Britain, France, and Germany declared on Saturday that they had “serious reservations” about Iran’s intentions.
