Over the weekend, Iran reportedly launched two ballistic missile in tests over the Gulf of Oman. The testing of these missiles is in violation of UN resolutions and the nuclear deal with world powers. Iran’s response was dishonest and belligerent, as usual:
“The missile issue is not part of the nuclear deal. As all signatories to the nuclear deal have announced, the missile issue is not a part of the deal… Our ballistic missile was designed to carry a normal warhead in the field of legitimate defense.”
~Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif (also a key Iranian negotiator in the nuclear deal)
Amir Tsarfati has posted commentary on Iran’s latest missile launches and you can read it here.
How close are we? Perhaps closer than we know!
