Israeli has launched its latest military spy satellite to conduct espionage activities on Iran's nuclear energy program and anti-Israeli resistance groups in the region.

The Tel Aviv regime announced on Wednesday the launch of 'Ofek-10' spy satellite from a base south of Tel Aviv by the state-owned Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI), which built the system for the Israeli military.

Previously, the Israeli regime launched the Ofek-9 spy satellite in June 2010.

According to Israeli media outlets, the Israeli spy satellite project is financed by US-based Zionist Casino owner and billionaire Sheldon Adelson, who is also a well-known financier of American pro-Israel lobby groups.

Adelson, the reports add, has donated about $16.4 million to the satellite project.

The amount given to Israel by American moguls comes in addition to what the regime's military regularly receives from the US government as an annual grant of nearly $3 billion out of taxes it collects from the American people, who do not have a say in Washington's foreign aid giveaways.

Israel, which is believed to possess as many as 400 nuclear warheads and does not allow any inspection of its nuclear activities by international regulators, is the leading propagandist against Iran's peaceful nuclear energy program that has been under close supervision by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
