A giant replica of an Iranian Shihab missile was seen on the back of an 18-wheeler truck in the streets of Tel Aviv on Monday.

The missile appeared to be part of an anonymous campaign entitled "The Agents of the Revolution." The group, whose goal was unclear, also released a cryptic, corresponding YouTube clip.

A slogan on the side of the missile read "Look for us on Facebook - The agents of the Revolution (סוכני המהפכה).

In the YouTube clip, a spokeswoman for the anonymous group says, "We the agents of the revolution say to the Israeli public one simple thing, our missiles are really dangerous, but the real enemies of the citizens of Israel are the agents." The clip, resembling a commercial for a fashion clothing outlet promises a next chapter with the words "To be continued," written across the screen.
Agents of the Revolution campaign

"The agents of the revolution are on their way to make a change," the clip concludes.
