Iran Successfully Test-Fired Several Ballistic Missiles

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has successfully test-fired several ballistic missiles from silos across the country.

These tests were conducted by IRGC to demonstrate the country’s deterrent power and its ability to confront any threat against the state and the sovereignty of the country. With this Iran has breached United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions that compel it to refrain from any work on ballistic missiles for 8 years.

After two Iranian missile tests last October, the U.S. announced new sanctions in January against Iranians and companies for helping Iran’s ballistic missile program.

Extra info:
  • General Amir Ali Hajizadeh is the head of the IRGC’s space program.
  • In July, 2015 the U.S. and world powers reached an agreement with Iran on its nuclear activities.
  • Iran has always denied any link between its missile program and the disputed nuclear activity.
