Iran said on Monday that it had created a suicide drone with the sole purpose of attacking Tel Aviv and Haifa in Israel, according to the semi-official Mehr News Agency.
The Arash-2 suicide drone is an improved version of its predecessor and is intended to target the cities of Iran’s fierce foe Israel, according to Kiomars Heydari, the commander of the Iranian army’s ground forces.
The drone has “special capabilities and can recover numerous times until it strikes the target,” Heydari stated, adding that “we have evaluated this drone specifically for the attack on Haifa and Tel Aviv.”
As part of his country’s ongoing attempts to threaten the restoration of the 2015 nuclear agreement, which it sees as faulty, Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid cautioned Iran on Tuesday not to test his nation’s “long arm” in a video while standing next to an F-35 stealth bomber jet.
Heydari affirmed that the drone had been added to the army’s inventory and that its capabilities would soon be made public.
As part of its ongoing efforts to guarantee that the nuclear agreement does not become a reality, Israel has promised to do all in its power to prevent its longtime foe from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
Lapid visited Germany on Sunday to persuade other European nations to oppose the agreement. His trip comes after a trio of European nations—Germany, France, and Britain—released a statement saying they had “serious reservations” about Iran’s seriousness in returning to the nuclear agreement.
The United Nations’ nuclear watchdog said that the European superpowers were “not in a position to give confidence that Iran’s nuclear program is entirely benign,” prompting the declaration from them.
Throughout Syria’s 11-year civil war, Iran’s archenemy has repeatedly targeted the forces it supports outside of its borders, launching hundreds of airstrikes on areas under regime control while frequently claiming to be attacking the bases and supplies of Iran-backed militias, like Lebanon’s Hezbollah organization, there.
