Iran Displays Khorramshahr Ballistic Missile With New Warhead - Reports
MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Iranian military displayed its Khorramshahr long-range ballistic missile with a new warhead at a parade dedicated to the anniversary of the beginning of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, Fars news agency reported on Sunday.
The Iranian military also showcased domestic air defence system Bavar-373 and missile defense system Khordad-15 as well as 18 other ballistic missiles, the Fars news agency reported.
Iran's missile program has been receiving considerable international attention for many years. The United States and a range of its allies view it as a violation of UN Security Council's 2231 resolution that recommends Tehran refrain from creating long-range ballistic missiles, as their development heavily relies on the nuclear weapons program banned under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
