Iran has test-fired a medium-range ballistic missile on Friday, Fox News television channel reported citing an unnamed senior official in the US administration.

According to Fox News, Shahab-3 ballistic missile was launched in the early hours on July 25 from the southern part of Iran and, after covering a distance of about 960 kilometers (600 miles) to the north of Iran, it landed in a desert not far from Tehran.

“We are aware of reports of a projectile launched from Iran, and have no further comment at this time,” the television channel cited its high-ranking source in the administration as saying on Thursday.

The reported ballistic missile launch comes in the wake of the recently strained relations between Tehran and the West.

The situation exacerbated on July 19, when the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), an elite military force of the Islamic Republic, seized the UK-flagged tanker Stena Impero in the Strait of Hormuz for “the violations of international maritime regulations.”

According to the IRGC, the tanker was escorted towards the shore for further investigation.

If true and no reason not to believe it isn’t , then Israel and Riyadh are well within range as are most US ME bases . They will make Iraq look like a picnic in the park if the US is stupid enough to try it. Sure they will make a mess of Iran but at what cost in return ..

You know, Shahab-3 is just another version of Scud. It’s not a major issue to intercept a Scud. +++ “They will make Iraq look like a picnic in the park if the US is stupid enough to try it.” >>> Iraq was a picnic… 500-600 dead a year is nothing when you have 2M militaries : between 1941 and 1945, they lost 400k, they lost 50k in Vietnam… Numbers are shrinking… AFAIK, there is no plan to send boots… 80% of Iranians want to hang the mullahs… As soon as the Waffen-IRGC and the Basij-Gestapo will have been hit enough,… Read more »

ISIS was created by Qassem Soleimani together with Zarqawi, pfff… +++ “aimed at the fake and imaginary state of ISISRAEL” >>> If it’s imaginary, why willing to destroy something that doesn’t exists? +++ “they are just waiting for a mistake and it will rain fire on the filthy jews” >>> Hey, do you really believe these lousy mullahs with their beards filled with lice are a super-power? You’re seriously deluded at the Waffen-IRGC’s hasbara department! You end believing your own lies! Pougnetta!
