Does Iran have long-range Cruise Missiles?
A very disturbing report.
Iran recently acquired 12 cruise missiles with a range of up to 3,000 kilometers, according to OC Intelligence Maj.-Gen. Aharon Ze'evi (Farkash) on Tuesday. He noted the missiles had the ability to carry a nuclear warhead.
Speaking at the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee for the last time before leaving his position, Ze'evi noted the missiles originated in a batch of 18 missiles shipped from Ukraine to Russia. Twelve of the missiles made their way to Iran, while the other six ended up in China.
He warned that Iran posed a substantial threat to Israel's security, and that the United States was "dragging its feet" in dealing with the situation. Still, the OC Intelligence head said that diplomatic pressure slowed the Iranian nuclear program, though it was still determined to produce an atomic bomb.
