Iran claims to have developed its first “land-based cruise missile” with a range of 700 kilometers, a Revolutionary Guards commander told state media on Sunday.

According to Fars News Agency, the new missile, “Ya Ali,” is said to be capable of being fired from ground launchers as well as by fighter jets.

"It is a land-based cruise missile built by the IRGC Aerospace Force and another land-based cruise missile has also been built by the defense ministry," Brig.-Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards Aerospace Force, told Fars.
