Iran has unveiled a series of new homemade nuclear-capable ballistic missiles during military parades held this week.

The parades come after a confrontation between an Iranian drone and Israeli forces in Syria on Saturday.

The arsenal included a nuclear-capable medium-range missile that appears to share similarities with North Korean technology, according to experts cited by the Washington Free Beacon news site.

“The nuclear-capable missile can strike Israel even when fired from Iranian territory,” the site reported.

Iran's state-controlled media quoted military officials as saying that the missile "can be launched from mobile platforms or silos in different positions and can escape missile defense shields due to their radar-evading capability."
