(Worthy News) — Iran unveiled its first hypersonic missile on Tuesday, a weapon it says can reach Israel, Tehran’s sworn arch-enemy, in 400 seconds, the Jerusalem Post reports.

Named “Fattah,” the missile was unveiled by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) during a ceremony attended by Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, IRGC Commander-in-Chief Hossein Salami, and other high-ranking officials, JPost reports.

According to Iranian state media, the Fattah hypersonic missile has a range of 1,400 kilometers and can reach speeds of Mach 13-15, JPost said. The missile is reportedly also able to circumvent and destroy air defense systems.

“Iran’s military, defense, and missile power creates deterrence, of course, it creates deterrence not only from invasion but also from the thought of invasion,” Raisi said in a statement. “This missile power means that the region will be safe from evildoers and foreign aggression, so its message to the people of the region is a message of security, and its message to those who are thinking of attacking Iran is that the Islamic Republic is a powerful country and its power aims to support the people of Iran and the oppressed people of the world.”

At the unveiling ceremony, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Force, said that Fattah is “a missile that is unique in the world.” In November, Hajizadeh claimed Iran had developed a new hypersonic missile that could reach Israel in 400 seconds, JPost reports.
