Iran confirms ballistic missile test launch - UPI.com
UPI reports: "Iran confirmed Wednesday it conducted a ballistic missile test launch,
and rejected criticism of the launch from Israel and the United
U.S. officials said the test launch occurred Sunday near Semnan, Iran,
150 miles east of Tehran. The medium-range missile flew about 600 miles
before it exploded.
The launch was seen by Israel and the United States as a violation of a
United Nations resolution, passed in 2016 after the landmark nuclear
agreement between Iran and six world powers, plus the EU, prohibiting
Iranian missile tests for eight years."
Comment: I think most observers realize that there are few reasons for a country to have ballistic missiles. They could well be planning to boost their space program, launch satellites and maybe go to the Moon. All worthy goals. Or they want to launch nuclear missiles.
