Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz unveiled satellite images of four Iranian warships operating in the Red Sea during a meeting of the Annual Economist Government Roundtable in Greece, the Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday.
Iran already has one of the largest missile programs in the region, reportedly possessing thousands of short-range and medium-range ballistic missiles. Iranian officials claim their long-range missiles can hit targets more than 1,200 miles away, according to the Jerusalem Post.
The Islamic republic is experimenting with a satellite launcher that could be used to develop an intercontinental missile capable of threatening Europe, Mr. Gantz said.
“At the same time, we are ready to work together with partners and build stability and prosperity in the region,” he said.
