Israel: Iran's Ballistic Missile Program Must Be Stopped

(Times of Israel) Raphael Ahren - The Israel Foreign Ministry on Wednesday slammed Iran's tests of long-range missiles. "The missile launches over the past few days represent a clear violation of Security Council Resolution 2231, which adopted the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. The decision bars Iran from firing missiles that have the capability to carry a nuclear warhead - which are precisely the missiles they fired." That Iran is developing missiles that are suited for nuclear warfare "raises a big question about Iran's intentions to comply fully with its part of the nuclear deal." Israel said Iran was "defying" world powers and urged the international community to act "forcefully and determinedly" to halt Iran's missile activity. "Iran's surface-to-surface missile program must be stopped."
