Iran Claims Hypersonic Ballistic Missile, US and Israel Working Together to Counter Threat

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards aerospace division claims to have built a hypersonic ballistic missile, according to an Iranian news agency report this week. A hypersonic missile can fly fast—up to five times the speed of sound—and handle complex flight paths. A missile like this is very hard to intercept—even for Israel’s advanced defense technologies like the Iron Dome and Arrow 3.
