Iran test-fires missiles in response to the US sanctions

Today, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard reported that the country had test-fired several ballistic missiles from silos across Iran.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps statement published on its website said that the test on Tuesday was intended “to show Iran’s deterrent power and also the Islamic Republic’s ability to confront any threat against the Revolution, the state and the sovereignty of the country.”

However, the UNSC has since adopted another resolution, which called upon Iran not to undertake any work on missiles “designed to” deliver nuclear weapons.Iran test-fires missiles in response to the US sanctions

Iran is currently undergoing a political transition, with President Hassan Rouhani and his allies securing in an election in February a majority of seats at the Assembly of Experts – the body tasked with electing the Supreme Leader of Iran, the most powerful figure in the country. The seat is now held by 76-year-old Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
