Iran unveils 2,000-km ballistic missile – TV

Iran on Thursday unveiled a new ballistic missile with a range of 2,000 km and a 1,500 kg warhead, according to the country’s state TV.

The new missile, which is reported to be an upgraded version of Iran’s Khoramshahr 4 ballistic missile, is equipped with sophisticated engines and is liquid fuel-powered, the TV said.

The missile, called Kheibar, can fly at high altitudes, but cannot be detected by radar systems, it added.

The move came just a couple of days after Israel’s army chief of staff warned that Israel could take action against Tehran over its nuclear program.
