Israel has successfully launched a spy satellite which will be used to gather intelligence on Iran’s activities, a new report says.
The TECSAR satellite is particularly important for Israel since it can be used to ‘keep tabs on Iran’s nuclear program’, the report said citing unnamed Israeli officials.
The officials revealed that the TECSAR satellite operates with an enhanced footage technology, allowing it to transmit images regardless of daytime and weather conditions.
TESCAR is considered the Zionist regime’s most advanced satellite in orbit to date.
Israel has been backing the US efforts to isolate Iran and persuade the international community to intensify sanctions against the Islamic Republic over its nuclear standoff with the West.
Despite a report by US spy agencies last fall which conceded that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons, Washington and Tel Aviv accuse Tehran of pursuing a nuclear arms program.
Iran says its nuclear activities are within the framework of the regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
