Iranian State TV has aired a shocking animation to prove that the country’s military missiles can obliterate key global landmarks. The terrifying television report, broadcast on Iran’s Channel 1, was intended to showcase the Iranian missile capabilities. European capitals were among the targets pictured, as well as the Taj Mahal, the pyramids, and the Kremlin.
In the animated video, the missile can be seen flying around the globe while a narrator describes the weapon’s capabilities.
The Iranian narration says: “In 2015, Iran tested for the first time its long-range ballistic missile, which can be controlled and guided until it hits the target.
“The Emad Missile has a range of 2,500 km and can easily hit targets in Russia, Eastern Europe, western China, north-eastern Africa and large parts of India.”
The haunting video was the first broadcast on December 22nd last year but has only just been translated to Western audiences.
This comes as secret reports revealed that the White House demanded military draft plans for strikes on Iran.
The war order from US National Security Adviser John Bolton sparked huge concern at the Pentagon and State Department, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The military move was in response to a mortar attack launched by an Iran-linked group on the Iraqi diplomatic quarters home to the US embassy in September.
Despite accusations, Iran rejected all claims that they were responsible for the attack.
The White House National Security Council (NSC) sought to develop a forceful American response to the low-scale attack, including options for a strike against the Islamic republic.
In one meeting, then-deputy national security advisor Mira Ricardel called the attacks in Iraq an “act of war” and called for a decisive response.
The shock report also revealed that the NSC requested options for strikes in Iraq and Syria.
Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanhayu confirmed that the Israeli Air Force had struck Iranian targets in Syria.
Mr Netanyahu said: “The accumulation of recent attacks proves that we are determined more than ever take action against Iran in Syria, and we will strike harder in Syria if needed.”
