Iran has procured North Korean missiles capable of reaching Europe, Israel’s military intelligence chief said. Ha’aretz on Thursday quoted Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin as saying that Iran recently received a shipment of BM-25s from Pyonyang, boosting its locally made Shihab missile batteries. The BM-25 is capable of carrying nuclear warheads and has a maximum range of 1,500 miles. In February, German media reported that Iran had ordered 18 disassembled BM-25s from North Korea.
