Iran on Tuesday unveiled an advanced drone capable of reaching Israel.
Iranian state media carried a video displaying the drone and other weaponry, with accompanying text, in Hebrew and Persian, warning ‘Prepare your shelters’ and ‘fire is on the way.’”
Tehran’s clerical regime has repeatedly threatened the Jewish state.
The Mohajer-10 UAV has an operational radius of 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles) and the ability to stay airborne for 24 hours at an altitude of around 23,000 feet (7,000 meters), according to the report. Tehran and Jerusalem are 969 miles (1,559 kilometers) apart as the crow flies.
“Mohajer” means “immigrant” in Farsi and has been a drone line manufactured by the Islamic Republic since 1985.
Iran unveiled its latest drone update, the "Mohajer 10" claiming to have an operational range of 2,000 km. The text in Hebrew in the video reads: "Prepare your bunkers". The IRGC also began delivering the “Khorramshahr" & "Haj Qasim" missiles to its forces.pic.twitter.com/AX79XItb8f

The drone was displayed publicly as part of Defense Industry Day in the presence of President Ebrahim Raisi.
According to the semi-official Mehr News Agency, the drone can carry a payload of 300 kilograms (661 pounds) and a maximum speed of some 210 kilometers per hour (130 miles per hour). It has “the ability to carry all kinds of ammunition and bombs and is equipped with electronic warfare and intelligence systems.”

This year, we want to do more to bless Israel and the Jewish people.
We know that as we bless Israel this year, God will bless us, just as He promised in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Now is the time to bless Israel and the Jewish people.
