RT: The mock attack came as a part of the Great Prophet 17 military drills, a large-scale, five-day exercise in Iran that began on December 20. Footage of the destruction of the mockup of Israeli Dimona reactor, officially known as the Shimon Peres Negev Nuclear Research Center, was circulated by Iranian media over the weekend.

Video of the exercise shows multiple ballistic missile launchers, some disguised as civilian freight trucks, lining up for the attack, before unleashing a volley of projectiles at the target. At least one launcher, packed with suicide drones and disguised as a dump truck, is featured in the video as well.

The missiles are then shown obliterating the mockup, bearing the distinctive features of the Dimona reactor, including a circular dome and ventilation shafts for underground facilities. A total of 16 ballistic missiles and five suicide drones were used in the exercise, according to Iranian media.

The Great Prophet 17 drills come amid heightened tensions between Iran and Israel, and in the wake of stalled talks on the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Israel has consistently opposed the agreement and attempts to revive it, claiming that Tehran is seeking to produce nuclear weaponry, a charge that Iran has repeatedly denied.

Fake Dimona

Israel has reportedly been weighing a military option against Iran, considering a preemptive strike on its nuclear facilities regardless of the fate of the JCPOA. Iran has warned Tel Aviv against such actions, with the commander-in-chief of the IRGC dismissing them as “Zionist empty threats,” and adding: “If the officials of this regime do a damn thing, we will cut off their hands.”

  1. Which Beirut Payback are we talking about?
    Why not talk about payback for the 220 Marines
    killed in Beirut under that traitor Ronald Reagan’s “watch”
    Remember, Ronald “Israel First” Reagan told the Marines
    to stand down and not to fire their weapons.
    Do we believe the MOSSAD’s version of what happened?
    MOSSAD motto: “Through Deception Thou Shall Make War”
    Israel blamed the Massacre on “Arabs”
    The same thing with the USS Liberty.
    Israel tried to blame it on Egypt, but they left survivors on the Liberty even though Israel came back after their initial attack and used napalm on the Liberty and her Brave Crew.
    Anybody with an ounce of common sense knows Israel did 911.
    and who did they blame it on? “Arabs”
    Israel will not get away with killing American Troops!
    My Brothers In Arms, Someday You Will Be Avenged!
