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.”
