A life-size reproduction of Israel’s Dimona nuclear power plant was wiped out by 16 ballistic missiles and five suicide drones deployed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which evokes a “serious warning”.

A life-size model of an Israeli nuclear power plant was destroyed during military exercises between December 20 and 24 by the Iranian organization of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (Pasdaran). The target was wiped out by multiple ballistic missiles and suicide drones, according to a video released by Iranian media.

The mock attack took place as part of military exercises dubbed the “Grand Prophet”, a large-scale five-day maneuver in Iran described as “a serious warning to Zionist regime officials” by General Hossein Salami, leader of the Zionist regime. Guardians of the Revolution.

Video of the destruction of a giant mock-up of Israel’s Dimona nuclear power plant (with the distinctive features of this reactor, including a circular dome and ventilation shafts for the underground facilities) shows several ballistic missile launchers, some disguised as civilian trucks, lining up before launching a swarm of projectiles at their target. One of the launchers, filled with suicide drones and disguised as a dump truck, is also shown in the video. A total of 16 ballistic missiles and five suicide drones were used in the exercise, according to Iranian media.

The exercises come amid heightened tensions between Iran and Israel and following the stalemate in talks over the nuclear deal signed in Vienna in 2015. Israel has consistently opposed the deal and says Tehran is seeking still producing nuclear weapons, a charge Iran has repeatedly denied. Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, who accused Iran of “nuclear blackmail”, recently called for the “immediate end” of nuclear negotiations in Vienna with Tehran, opposing a lifting of sanctions against that country.

“These exercises were designed to respond to threats made in recent days by the Zionist regime,” General Mohammad Bagheri, Chief of Staff of the armed forces, said on December 25 on Iranian television, referring to Israel. “Sixteen missiles aimed and annihilated the chosen target. During this exercise, some of the hundreds of Iranian missiles capable of destroying a country that would dare to attack Iran were deployed, ”he added.
