JNS.org Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said his country’s new reconnaissance and combat drone, Fotros, has a range of 1,250 miles, meaning it could reach Israel from Iran.

“This drone is able to carry out reconnaissance missions and carry air-to-surface rockets for combat operations,” Dehghan said, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency.

Dehghan said Iran sanctions by “enemies” cannot “create an obstacle in the path of progress for our defense industries.”
