Iran has released a video of what it claims to be designed to kill civilians of its enemy: Israel. The Islamic Republic’s President, Ebrahim Raisi stated the regime can “firmly introduce Iran as an advanced and technologic nation to the world” as he reportedly admired the drone.
Foreign Desk News reports the Islamic Republic’s media outlets claimed the drone can fly up to 24,000 feet with a speed of 210 kph carrying a bomb payload of up to 300 kilograms. The drone can also allegedly hold electronic surveillance equipment and a camera.

The only saving grace may be that “Iran has a history of boasting about new technologies, including drones, that don’t live up to the hype they proclaim,” explained Matthew RJ Brodsky, senior fellow at the Gold Institute for International Strategy.
“This should be alarming, coming on the heels of their previous recent announcement about having hypersonic missile capabilities. That said, this upgraded drone itself is not a game-changer,” Brodsky explained.
According to Brodsky the regime in Tehran “hopes to cash in with sales to Russia and other bad actors, aside from threatening the Persian Gulf and Israel.”
Foreign Desk News adds:
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last year, US officials have found that the Islamic Republic has supplied Moscow with military drones to assist the Kremlin in its military campaign. In one instance, Western officials found a single Iranian drone contained parts made by more than a dozen American and Western companies.
In addition to Iran attempting to copy American military drones, China has also engaged in similar actions, capturing equipment and creating new variants for its military forces.

Hamas Claims Responsibility for Deadly Attack in West Jerusalem
In a tragic incident on Thursday, two gunmen opened fire at a bus stop in West Jerusalem, resulting in the deaths of three Israelis and injuries to 16 others. Hamas, the militant group against which Israel declared war after a previous deadly terror attack, has claimed responsibility for this latest act of violence.
The motive behind the attack, according to Hamas, is in response to what they consider Israeli “crimes” committed in Gaza, as reported by the BBC. This assault occurred amid an existing ceasefire between the two sides, adding complexity to the situation.
Off-duty soldiers and a civilian at the scene took swift action, successfully neutralizing the gunmen. Jerusalem District Commander Doron Turgeman informed reporters that the assailants approached the bus stop in a car and were armed with two weapons. Subsequent investigations revealed a significant amount of ammunition in the gunmen’s vehicle.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken, during a meeting with Israel’s President Isaac Herzog, condemned the attack, emphasizing that it serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing threat of terrorism faced by Israel and its people daily.
The incident underscores the volatile nature of the conflict and the challenges in maintaining stability, even during periods of ceasefire. As investigations continue, the international community closely watches developments in the region, hoping for a path toward lasting peace and security for all involved.
