Note to Iran: If you’re trying to assure world leaders that the new president brings messages of peace and compromise, you might not want to broadcast a lengthy documentary about attacking Israel with missiles.

But that’s what Tehran television just did. The media outlet broadcast an hourlong documentary about Iran’s missile capabilities and how its security force would use them against foreign threats, Ynet News reported.

Notable in the video was a simulated attack on Israel to take out its nuclear plants. The video went into great detail, showing computer-generated images of launches of Iran’s long-range Sejjil ballistic missiles, Ynet News reported. In the broadcast, Israel was only able to intercept some of the missiles — while others were direct hits.

Among the targets shown in the documentary, Ynet News said: Azrieli Towers, the Kirya in Tel Aviv, Israel Defense Force’s base in Tzfirin, Ben Gurion Airport and the nuclear facility at Dimona.

The video used pictures of those who were killed or injured in the Second Lebanon War.

The documentary comes as the United States, Iran and other key world leaders are set to discuss Tehran’s nuclear development and the state of Western-led sanctions. Iran’s newest president, Hassan Rouhani, has presented himself as a calm contrast to the former fiery Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and as a leader who wants to form more diplomatic relations with the West.
