    The Iranian Armed Forces have assured this Monday that they have developed a drone with “exclusive capabilities” to attack the Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa, amid increased tensions in recent months, including cross-accusations of responsibility for various cyberattacks. .

    Kiomars Heidari, commander of the Iranian Army Ground Force, has detailed that the ‘Arash-2’ has been developed taking into account “specifically” the cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa. “The drone has unique capabilities and can bounce back multiple times until it hits its target. We are waiting for orders to use it one day,” he added.

    Thus, he has emphasized that it is “a unique bird created for this job” and has stated that “this drone has entered the ground forces.” “We will reveal its capabilities in future exercises,” Heidari said, as reported by the Iranian news agency Mehr.

    On the other hand, he pointed out that “the Army’s ground forces are the best and are unparalleled among the countries of the region”, while arguing that “the Army and the Revolutionary Guard are considered a divine army”. “We are complementary and we must maintain synergies between us,” she defended.

    “Today, the Army ground forces are at the center of the drone program. We have drones with a strategic range and even one with a range of 2,000 kilometers,” he revealed. “Of course, we also have drones with a shorter range in our combat organization,” he said.

    “Our goal is to create deterrence and let the enemies know that if they make a mistake, we will break their arms and legs using our domestically made equipment and weapons. We will not allow them to gain an advantage and will always maintain dominance,” Heidari said. .

    Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid warned Iran last week against testing the “long arm” of the Israeli army, amid calls by Israeli authorities against reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, which suffered a harsh setback in 2018 with the withdrawal of it by the United States, which reimposed sanctions on Tehran.
