warned military experts, that Iranian missiles developed capable of carrying nuclear warheads, became in the possession of the Houthi militias Vniah terrorist in Yemen, noting that it obtained from the Lebanese Hezbollah through.
The missile, which the Houthis said they fired at a nuclear reactor site under construction in the United Arab Emirates, 230 km from Abu Dhabi, is a winged Iranian named Sumar Kh-55.
They explained that this missile is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, and dozens of it was smuggled in 2001 from Ukraine to Iran, in a process that caused great uproar to the West, because it was not known whether these rockets were smuggled with or without nuclear warheads, Has not been decided definitively so far.
Experts noted that the intelligence hypothesis at the time was saying: The Ukrainian officers were responsible for the stockpiles of these missiles sold to Iran, and at least transferred to the technical information on how to install nuclear warheads on those missiles.
They stressed that the case had been forgotten for 14 years, specifically until 2015, or was deliberately obscured by the administrations of former US presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, but there was some intelligence that Iran had nuclear-capable missiles.
Experts added that the nuclear deal with Iran deliberately ignored the file of these missiles, which was not discussed during the negotiations, but in April 2015, immediately after the signing of the nuclear agreement announced the Iranian Ministry of Defense to launch a new line to produce missiles, "Sumar."
They pointed out that two years later, specifically in January 2017, Tehran conducted the first test to launch this missile, while the US and Israeli security and intelligence services continued to silence, while German intelligence sources said that the missile launched for 600 kilometers and hit the target set.
According to the US report, the launch of the Houthi missile on Abu Dhabi on December 3 is the second launch of this missile, monitored by US intelligence and the Middle East.
Reports quoted military experts as saying that the closest point controlled by the Huthis in Yemen followed 1100 kilometers from the UAE, while the range of the Iranian-made rocket is 2500 kilometers and capable of flying at speeds of 860 kilometers per hour.
They explained that the type of rockets fly at a very low altitude, making it difficult to monitor it, so that the guidance system provided is still unknown.
However, experts said the most likely estimate was that the launch of the Iranian missile failed and exploded shortly after its launch, and therefore did not reach the UAE. However, what worried the military was Iran's willingness to go far in any possible war with the Gulf states, including supplying the Houthis With missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
The experts said that if Iran had provided the Houthis with this type of missile, it would certainly have supplied the Lebanese Hezbollah with it, and that Iranian and Hezbollah missile officers and experts would be among the Huthis forces in Yemen and could be assumed to have been present at the time of the launch of the missile. Who fired it mainly.
The experts added that this means that Hezbollah officers have gained experience in launching these missiles, just as the party elements in Syria have gained experience in managing large forces embedded in the battlefield under Russian air cover.
Iran has more than 2,000 kilometers of missiles capable of reaching Europe and carrying nuclear warheads.
