Iran successfully test-fired a ballistic missile buried underground on Wednesday.
Iran claims to have successfully tested a new ballistic missile, according to a report released by the Iranian News Agency. Iran’s General Amir Ali Hajizada says this is the first experience of its kind in the world.
Military exercises are underway in southern Iran. The last part of the exercises is named after the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Details of the exercise are being officially broadcast to the media.
During this time, ballistic missiles were tested buried in the ground of Hormozgan province. Launching pads and other traditional devices were not used. The Iranian general claims that all the missiles hit the targets.
Earlier, the Iranian military conducted exercises to seize American ships, to which the Americans reacted strongly. The U.S. Navy called the Iranian exercise “irresponsible” and said it was an attempt to intimidate.
Iran fired dummy missiles at the US Navy during a training exercise in the Strait of Hormuz, using so many weapons that two US navies in the region had to be ordered to remain vigilant.
