Iran Tests Ballistic Missile With 1200 Mile Range

Posted September 24, 2017

The new missile represents a leap forward in Iranian missile technology that puts the state of Israel right in the crosshairs.

The news report cites that detail as being "much to the chagrin of President Trump and company" - but 2017 isn't the first time the USA has aired its concerns over Iran's rocket and missile research.

Iran maintains that testing non-nuclear ballistic missiles is not a violation of the JCPOA.

He also criticized the 2015 pact that the United States and other world powers struck with Iran under which Tehran agreed to restrict its nuclear program in return for relief from economic sanctions. Iran casts itself as a leading advocate for the rights of Palestinians.

On Thursday, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final say on all major policies in Iran, said Trump's "cheap, ugly, foolish and unreal" remarks before the U.N. General Assembly were a sign of desperation. "We will strengthen our missile capabilities". State broadcaster IRIB quoted an Iranian commander who stated that the country would not seek "permission" for future weapons tests. "Not only will we fortify our missiles, but our ground, navy and air forces will always be supported by the people".

Iran announced on Saturday, September 23, 2017, that it has successfully tested a new missile, with a 1,250-mile range, which is capable of reaching Israel and United States bases in the Gulf. "As long as Iranians were barred from entering the USA, US citizens would be barred from entering Iran; as soon as the US lifts the ban, as it was forced to do at the end of February, Iran would respond in kind".

President Rouhani said: "We will promote our defensive and military power as much as we deem necessary". The agency did not provide further information on the missile.

UN inspectors say Iran has fulfilled its commitments to give up its nuclear activities under the agreement, which was reached with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany.

During his first address to the United Nations, Trump on Tuesday referred to Iran as a "corrupt dictatorship" that exports "violence, bloodshed and chaos". Trump said on Wednesday he had made his decision, but was not yet ready to reveal it.

The test-firing of the Khorramshahr missile, which Iran said could carry several warheads, is likely to raise concerns in Washington.
