Buz Investors Iran tests missile Iran is holding a military exercise on Saturday to test its missile and radar systems, a day after U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration imposed sanctions on Tehran for its recent ballistic missile test. The United States sanctioned 13 individuals and 12 entities under U.S. Iran sanctions authority on Friday, after the White House had put Iran “on notice” over a ballistic missile test and other activities. The Revolutionary Guards website said that the aim of the military exercise in Semnan province in central Iran was to “showcase the power of Iran’s revolution and to dismiss the sanctions.” Iranian
Iranian state news agencies reported that home-made missile systems, radars, command and control centres, and cyber warfare systems would be tested in Saturday’s drill.
Iran has one of the Middle East’s largest missile programmes and held a similar exercise in December to showcase its defence systems, including radars, anti-missile defence units, and short and medium-range missiles.
Tehran confirmed on Wednesday that it had test-fired a new ballistic missile, but said the test did not breach the Islamic Republic’s nuclear agreement with world powers or a U.N. Security Council resolution endorsing the pact.
