UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Israel currently has anti-aircraft systems to intercept ballistic missiles. One of these best-performing systems is the Arrow 3. However, the characteristics of the Iranian missile Sejjil show that this missile is able to bypass the Israeli anti-aircraft systems, which is of great concern to the enemy.
In the process, an Israeli website focusing on military and ballistic issues released a report about Iranian ballistic capabilities: “The Iranian-made Emad missile is able to bypass the Israeli Arrow 3 air defense system was designed and manufactured by Israel’s airline industry and the US Boeing”.
Israeli military expert Uzi Rubin says Iran’s military and ballistic capabilities are scares many Israelis and make it less likely that Israel will infiltrate strategically in the Golan Heights and in Palestinian areas . “I speak every year about the Iranian ballistic program. During the past year, this program has been changed a lot without anyone paying attention. Iran is rapidly developing its ballistic program,” Uzi Rubin said.
He added: “Iranian ballistic missiles are mass produced and stored, and there are even signs that these missiles are being exported. That’s incredible! We had previously witnessed the export of missiles to Iran and now the process has been reversed.”
Al-Jazeera recently published an infographic of Iranian ballistic capabilities in support of information provided by Western newspapers.
In addition, the Israeli daily The Jerusalem Post spoke of the great performance of the Sejjil missile. “The Iranian ballistic exercises have been conducted with old systems and this raises a question: what will be the future of Iranian missiles? These exercises were fully overseen by Israel not to see what type of missile was tested but to see which missile was missing.
The Sejjil missile that had been tested in 2009, did not appear during these exercises.
It is certain and certain that the Islamic Republic of Iran needs no authorization from anyone to strengthen its defensive and ballistic capabilities and that it follows its defensive programs, particularly in the ballistic domain, with seriousness and determination.
The Sejjil, Khoramshahr, Shahab and Emad missiles support this claim, especially since the Shahab missile is able to reach Israel in less than ten minutes; in seven minutes more precisely, according to the Israelis themselves.
Strong arms like the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps, the Army and the Basij at the disposal of the Islamic Republic of Iran deter enemies from attacking it.
