Iran Intimidates with Missiles

Iran Intimidates with Missiles August 1, 2019

The missile was launched from the southern coast of Iran and landed east of Tehran. It flew about 1,100 kilometres and stayed inside Iran for the entire flight. Shabab-3 is derived from the North Korean No Dong Missiles. Missile launches are not forbidden under the nuclear accord reached between Washington and Tehran, which US President Trump complains about the agreement that he abandoned last year. But a United Nations Security Council resolution, passed just as the agreement was reached, says that “Iran is called upon not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.” An Iranian military official said the nation’s missile tests were for “defensive needs”.
