Iran plans to mass-produce a missile capable of reaching Israel. “We have the capability to mass-produce Shihab-3 missiles,” Iranian Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani told reporters in Tehran on Tuesday. With a range of up to 1,250 miles, the latest Shihab model can reach both the Jewish state and U.S. targets in the Persian Gulf, and is believed capable of delivering nonconventional warheads.
