Long range cruise missile news from Iran. News headlines and events Last Minute Russia


A senior Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps commander said Iran is producing cruise missiles with a range of 1,650 kilometers. After Russia’s use of Iranian-made drones in the war in Ukraine, the move is believed to have raised concerns in the West.

“A cruise missile with a range of 1,650 km has been added to the arsenal of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Revolutionary Guard Air Force Commander Emir Ali Hajizadeh said on state television.

Iranian state television has shared what it says is the first image of the new Paveh cruise missile.

Hajizadeh confirmed US threats to avenge the death of Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a drone attack in Baghdad in 2020.

Hajizadeh said they did not aim to kill “poor soldiers” in the attack on a US military base days after Soleimani’s assassination in Iraq. Hajizade said they want to go after former US President Donald Trump, as well as former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the military leaders who gave the order.

Iranian leaders often call for revenge for Soleimani.

Iran has expanded its missile program to include ballistic missiles, despite opposition from the United States and European countries. Tehran says the program is purely defensive and deterrent.

Iran has announced that it supplied unmanned aerial vehicles to Moscow ahead of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Russia has used Iranian drones to strike power plants and civilian infrastructure.

A Pentagon statement in November said Hajizade’s claim that Iran was developing a hypersonic ballistic missile was viewed with suspicion.
