Iran successfully test-fires new ballistic missile

"We can not allow it to happen.", Liberman said.

Iran unveiled the ballistic missile Friday at a military parade in Tehran and successfully tested it the same day, Press TV reported. The video included footage from an on-board camera showing the detachment of the cone that could carry multiple warheads.

On Friday, the Iranian armed forces commemorated the 1980-1988 war with Iraq by holding a parade in which Iran's most advanced military power and abilities are showcased.

Even though Iran has long boasted of owning missiles within the exact same assortment included in the arsenal, it had been the very first time that this Khoramshahr rocket has been exhibited in public places.

Iran test-fired a new missile that it said could carry several warheads, state media reported late Friday, in a move that looked set to ratchet-up tensions with Washington.

That makes them only medium-range but still sufficient to reach Israel or USA bases in the Gulf.

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.

Trump has threatened to trash the nuclear agreement, saying Iran is developing missiles that might be used to deliver a nuclear warhead when the deal's restrictions are lifted in 2025. The missile, Khoramshahr, was launched from an unknown location.

"It will be a great pity if this agreement were to be destroyed by "rogue" newcomers to the world of politics: the world will have lost a great opportunity". If, as now appears increasingly likely, he decides that it is not, it could open the way for renewed United States sanctions and perhaps the collapse of the agreement. Even if those chances are slim, if Iran pushes Israel to the wall, they will nearly certainly respond.

On Wednesday, Rouhani spoke during the 2017 gathering of the UN General Assembly.

"Whether you like it or not, we are going to defend the oppressed peoples of Yemen, Palestine and Syria", he said.

Fitzpatrick agrees it would be a good idea to extend the Iran nuclear deal to include ballistic missiles.

This comes as Iran said it will strengthen its missile capabilities and not seek any country's permission to perform terrifying tests. Rouhani had rejected a USA -led effort to alter the Iranian 2015 nuclear agreement at the United Nations General Assembly in NY on Wednesday.
