Iran: Tehran unveils new long-range cruise missile Hoveyzeh
Iran's Defence Minister Amir Hatami together with the Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh unveiled a new generation of Soumar long-range ground-to-ground cruise missile named Hoveyzeh in Tehran on Saturday.
"We live in a world in which some rulers do not pay attention to the nations' rights, the nations' sovereignty, their votes and are not committed to any agreements and international laws," said Hatami as he explained the necessity of improving Iran's defence line against such international violations.
Hatami also touched upon the missile's unique capabilities such as its short pre-launch preparation time, its lower flying altitude and its warhead strength.
