I want to share this news I’ve read today. Even if the drone has not achieved such a long range in a real flight (easily far enough to fly from Tehran to Reykjavik), Iran is sending a warning message that it can strike Israel with this weapon. Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Commander Maj.-Gen. Hossein Salami has said the new drone has a 7,000-km. range, which means it could fly from Iran or via Yemen or Syria over Israel and back to its base. Iran recently unveiled a drone called Gaza, a clear reference to the recent 11-day conflict between Hamas and Israel. It is unclear if the 7,000-km. range refers to the range of the new Gaza drone or another type. IRGC Aerospace Force Commander Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh is one of the key figures behind the drone and missile program. The “IRGC commander-in-chief, who was enumerating the country’s achievements in technology and science… [said] today we have wide-body drones that go back and forth 7,000 kilometers and land anywhere they want,” Tasnim reported. The new Gaza drone is called the Shahed 149 and is larger than the Shahed 129, the report said.
