Iran has been working on a new-generation Shihab-class intermediate-range ballistic missile capable of striking most of Europe.
Gertz: Israeli intelligence sources said Iran has been developing the Shihab-4 missile, with a range of 3,500 to 4,000 kilometers. China, Belarus, North Korea and Russia are assisting. "The next generation of Shihab, which could hit London and Paris, would be ready by 2009," said parliamentarian Yuval Steinitz, former chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. The sources said Iran has been producing and fielding the Shihab-3ER, which could strike targets 2,000 kilometers away. Teheran launched an extended-range Shihab-3 during the Great Prophet exercise in the Gulf in November 2006.
