Iran Unveils ‘Longest-Range Drone in the World,’ Threatens Israel at Military Parade
Iran on Friday, September 22, displayed what it claimed to be “the longest-range drone in the world” during a military parade that featured banners threatening Israel.
The drone was one of several unnamed aerial vehicles and missiles that Iranian forces showed off at an event in Tehran marking the anniversary of the bloody Iran-Iraq War in the 1980s, and came weeks after Iran unveiled a drone it claimed could remain airborne for 24 hours.
The display of drones and other military hardware came days after the United States sanctioned several people and entities allegedly linked to Iran’s drone program. Friday’s parade featured large signs declaring “Down with Israel” and “Down with USA,” as well as posters in Hebrew and English warning Israelis to “prepare your shelters.”
State media reports on the parade did not provide details on “the longest-range drone in the world.” Iran has previously made dubious and exaggerated claims regarding its military capabilities and there was no independent confirmation of the announcement. (TOI / VFI News)
