One the one hand if the guidance systems is so crude then surely the nukes, which require more science and technology, are beyond their capacity!
Or on the other hand the guidance system is accurate enough to satisfy Irans generals.
Since we are talking about SRBM's, which are probably too small [650kg max] to carry a functional gun type fission weapon with the mass of 1metric
ton, Iran ALSO has several MRBM that could easily do that job and one doesn't have to be super accurate using a nuclear weapon/biochem anyway ...
anywhere in the ballpark will do!
And I am going to assume that Iran would fire as many missles in retaliation as possible, further increasing the chance of a critical strike and
totally annihilating Israel from the face of the planet let alone the map.

This SRBM may be the perfect retaliatory weapon to strike the ISS down ... if of course Russia doesn't step in to help Iran when it needs it.
