Israel has plane to spy on Iran

world Updated: Jul 10, 2008 12:11 IST

Israel says it will show an advanced aircraft that can spy on Iran.

State-run Israel Aerospace Industries plans an in-house exhibit Thursday of its Eitam airplane, which is equipped with sophisticated intelligence-gathering systems.

The plane was first unveiled a year ago. Israel's Army Radio says Israel is showing the plane now in response to Iran's missile test on Wednesday.

Iran test-fired long- and medium-range missiles during war games to show it could retaliate against any U.S. or Israeli attack. Israel considers Iran its greatest enemy and says Tehran cannot be allowed to develop nuclear weapons that could be used against the Jewish state.

Tehran insists its nuclear program is peaceful and designed only to produce energy.
