Jerusalem, 12 September, 2022 (TPS) — The new Iranian “Arash 2” suicide drone has unique capabilities that were developed specifically for targeting Haifa and Tel Aviv, Commander of Iran’s Army Ground Force Brigadier General Kioomars Heidari said on national Iranian TV.

Speaking after a military drill last week, Heidari spoke on Sunday night of Iran’s attack drone arsenal and said that the Islamic Republic has drones “with a strategic range and also a drone with a range of 2,000 kilometers. Of course, we also have drones with lower ranges in our stockpiles.”

He noted that the Arash 2 drone was specially designed for attacking Haifa and Tel Aviv, and that it is “a unique drone made for that purpose and awaits the command to start operation.”

Iran has been working in recent years to develop its domestic production capabilities of a broad array of missiles and attack drones.

Iran claims that the Arash 2, unveiled in December 2019, has a range of about two 2,000 kilometers, putting Israel in range, and becoming the longest-range suicide drone in the world. It is designed as a suicide and anti-radar drone.

Israel announced in March 2021 that the Iron Dome defense system has been upgraded and can now contend with drone threats as well.
