Fox News reported exclusively on Monday that Iran has again violated a United Nations resolution with another ballistic missile test.
The Khorramshahr medium-range ballistic missile was test-launched Sunday at a site about 140 miles east of Tehran.
According to the report, the test was not entirely successful, with the missile exploding upon re-entry after it flew 600 miles.
It was the second such test since July, despite a clear mandate imposed by UN Resolution 2231, passed a few days after the signing of the JCPOA (the nuclear deal with Iran), warning Tehran not to conduct ballistic missile tests for the next eight years.
The test ban that went into effect July 30, 2015, states clear that Iran is “called upon not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”
Israel and the United States have recently completed another successful round of testing the David’s Sling anti-missile system, a joint project of the two governments that is designed to intercept and destroy medium and long-range ballistic missiles outside the Earth’s atmosphere.
