Al Jazeera reported that Israel's air force has revealed its new fleet of drone planes that hold capabilities of flying to the Gulf, making Iran within range, all without a pilot.
The planes, called the Heron TP drones, have a Boeing 737 wingspan and are equipped to fly 20 consecutive hours. They were developed by Israel's Aerospace Industries.
Brigadier General Amikam Norkin, the man in charge of the base that houses the drones, told Al Jazeera, "we are realising the air force's dream" by operating the drone planes.
BBC says the drones can reach altitudes of more than 40,000 ft. No information has been divulged as to how many drones there are.
Iran president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is quoted in Al Jazeera as saying he thinks Israel is "seeking to start a war next spring or summer, although their decision is not final yet."
To rebut, Israel's prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu called Ahmadinejad's claims "manipulations" and that there are no plans for military action.
