Iran on Wednesday unveiled a new missile with a reported range that will allow it to reach US bases in the region as well as targets inside its staunch Israel.
State TV reported that the missile has solid fuel and a range of 1,450 kilometers or 900 miles. It is called Khyber-Buster, a reference to the capture of a Jewish palace by Muslim warriors in the early days of Islam. It said the missile has high accuracy, is completely indigenously manufactured, and can defeat missile shield systems. The information has not been independently verified.
Israel’s closest point to Iran is about 1,000 kilometers or 620 miles away. The report comes as talks with world powers continue in Vienna to revive Tehran’s broken nuclear deal. Iran says its missile program is only a deterrent.
