Iran publishes details of missiles and drones used in attack on Israel

Iranian state media has details of the weapons used in the unprecedented attack on Israel last weekend, including long-range missiles that can travel nearly 2,000 kilometers – almost double the capacity needed to reach Israel.

According to state news agency ISNA, Tehran used medium-range Emad and Kheibarshekan missiles in the attack.

The modern version of the Kheibarshekan missile has a range of up to 1,800 kilometers.

Emad missiles can carry a warhead of about 750 kilograms and fly at least 1,700 kilometers.

According to IRNA, they are launched from underground missile silos.

The distance from western Iran to Israel is approximately 1,000 kilometers.

Tehran launched a direct attack called “Operation Truthful Promise” on Israel over the weekend, involving some 300 missiles and drones, according to Israeli sources, fueling fears of a conflagration in the Middle East.

It came after Iran vowed retaliation for an airstrike on its embassy compound in Damascus on April 1 that killed two generals and others. Israel is suspected of carrying out the attack and has not denied responsibility.

Israel has been Iran’s proclaimed arch-enemy since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

According to IRNA, Iran also used Paveh cruise missiles in the attack, which could reach speeds of up to 900 km/h.

In addition to the missiles, Tehran has deployed Shahed 136 drones, the same kamikaze drones that Russia uses against Ukraine.
