Despite claims since the 2015 United Nations Iran Nuclear Deal that the Middle Eastern country was staying true to the requirements of the accord, Iran continues to reveal weapons that had to have been in development while the agreement was in place. The latest example is a cruise missile called Hoveyzeh that allegedly has a 1300 km range.
That puts Israel within reach of the new weapon. American military targets are also in that range.
“The Hoveyzeh missile is the symbol of self-belief and an important defense achievement based on today’s technological progress in the world,” said Iranian Defense Minister Amir Hatami.
It’s a mistake for anyone in the world to take Iran lightly. They’re economically backed into a corner and may need to turn to more aggressive military moves in order to maintain control over their own people. This new development puts everyone in the Middle East on alert.
