Israel Condemns Latest Iranian Ballistic Missile Test As 'provocation'

U.S. President Donald Trump signed in August a bill imposing mandatory penalties on those involved in Iran's controversial ballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them. Trump said in a tweet posted late on September 23.

The state TV broadcast a footage of "the successful test-launch of the country's new ballistic missile, Khorramshahr, a few hours after it was unveiled during a military parade in the capital city of Tehran on Friday".

Iran fired the missile despite warnings from Washington that it was ready to ditch the agreement with the United States and other world powers.

On Saturday, Iran announced that it successfully tested a new ballistic missile with a range of up to 1,200 miles.

Iran's defense minister said Saturday that Khorramshahr is an strategic missile and is a symbol of Iranian scientists' capability, official IRNA news agency reported.

The IRGC prepared the show for the annual Defense Week, marking the 37th anniversary of the 1980s Iran-Iraq war.

Trump also called for a harder line against Iran from other members of the United Nations, saying "we can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building unsafe missiles".

IN takes part in Rail Safety Week
Eric Holcomb has declared this week as Indiana Rail Safety Week in conjunction with U.S. Rail Safety Week that takes place in all 50 states, to increase rail safety awareness.

The test comes at the end of a heated week of diplomacy at the UN General Assembly in NY, where US President Donald Trump again accused Iran of destabilising the Middle East, calling it a "rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed and chaos".

Rohani responded to Trump remarks in his own speech to the UN General Assembly on September 20, saying Trump's speech was "ignorant, absurd, and hateful rhetoric". Last week, Netanyahu met with President Donald Trump to discuss 2015 nuclear agreement as well as Iran's regional behavior.

The 2015 Iranian nuclear agreement does not address the Islamic Republic's ballistic missile program.

Trump faces a mid-October deadline to certify to Congress whether or not he believes Iran has been in compliance with the nuclear agreement.

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

"Imagine what would happen if Iran were to acquire nuclear weapons", he said.

Iran has denied that its missiles would be used to carry a nuclear warhead.
