Succinct and to the point. Israel has apparently tested an upgraded version of its Jericho III missile this morning.
The Jericho III, a/k/a the YA-4, is a full-fledged ICBM capable of putting a 1,650 lb nuclear warhead onto a target 4,350 miles away. A slightly smaller warhead or pair of warheads could be delivered via low earth orbit anywhere on the planet. The Jericho III is also road mobile.
Israel is a nuclear superpower.
