Iran claims successful test of missile capable of reaching Israel

State television carried footage of the launch of the Khoramshahr missile, which was first displayed at a high-profile military parade in Tehran on Friday.

However, UN Security Council Resolution 2231 calls upon Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology. They also work with north Korea. "Not much of an agreement we have!" he wrote.

"Trump's fake empathy for Iranians rings ever more hollow, with his new and even more offensive travel ban against such outstanding citizens", the Iranian FM said on Twitter.

President Hassan Rouhani on Friday vowed that his country would continue to bolster its ballistic-missile program, amid rising tensions with the US.

The minister stressed that Iran's nuclear program "will remain peaceful", but "will not address and accept the limitations that we voluntarily accepted".

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman called the missile test a "provocation and defiance towards the United States and its allies, including Israel". If he refuses to do so, it could open the door to renewed United States sanctions and the collapse of the deal. Trump said in a tweet posted late on September 23.

Other signatories to the nuclear accord are Russia, China, Britain, France, and Germany.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is responsible for verifying that Iran meets the terms of the agreement.

What's new, he said, is that Iran says its ballistic missiles can carry multiple warheads and maybe several cluster bombs.
