    Iran's new precision missile, Sajjil, is an indicator of a great advancement in Iran's missile industries, an Israeli expert has said.

    Iran successfully tested the missile recently, which burns a combination of solid and liquid fuels and has a range of 2,000 kilometers.

    "This is a whole new missile," Uzi Rubin, former director of Israel's Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, told Jane's military intelligence website.

    "Unlike other Iranian missiles, Sajjil bears no resemblance to any North Korean, Russian, Chinese or Pakistani [missile technology]. It demonstrates a significant leap in Iran's missile capabilities,” he added.

    "Regardless of the success of the test, this missile places Iran in the realm of multiple-stage missiles, which means that they are on the way to having intercontinental ballistic missile capabilities," Rubin noted.

    Iran has said that its missile capability is of a defensive nature.
