Iran Displays Nuclear-Capable Ballistic Missile at Parade Celebrating Revolution
Iran displayed a nuclear-capable ballistic missile during parades celebrating the country’s 1979 revolution over the weekend, reinforcing concerns that it is in violation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution implementing the nuclear deal, the Washington Free Beacon reported Monday.
The Ghadr (or Qadr) missile, according to Iranian military officials “can be launched from mobile platforms or silos in different positions and can escape missile defense shields due to their radar-evading capability,” according to accounts appearing in Iran’s state-controlled media. Israel is within the range of the missile when launched from Iranian territory.
“Thirty-nine years in, the Islamic Revolution has little to show for its decades in power other than growing the country’s asymmetric military capabilities in order to continue their export of the revolution,” Behnam Ben Taleblu, an expert on Iran with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, said. “The Islamic Republic has considerably grown the country’s missile and rocket arsenal, both through production and procurement.”
