Iran Unveils New Missiles, Improving Its Reach at Sea and to Israel - The Wall Street Journal

Iran unveiled two new missiles Thursday amid fresh tensions with the U.S. and its allies in the Middle East, demonstrating a development of an arsenal with sophistication and reach capable of threatening and deterring its foes across the region.

The display of new missiles adds to a buildup of regional animosity after the U.A.E. and Israel last week said they were forging diplomatic relations. The U.S.-backed deal aligns old enemies against a common rival in Iran.

The missile presentation, broadcast on Iranian state television, came on Iran’s annual National Defense Industry day. Iran’s army used the occasion to gloat over what it called a “last frantic attempt” by the U.S. to prevent it from buying weapons.

The United Nations Security Council last week rejected a U.S. proposal to extend a five-year ban on the sale of conventional weapons to the country. President Trump has said his administration now plans to move unilaterally to try to trigger sanctions on Iran.

As a result of last week’s Security Council vote, the embargo on arms sales to Iran will expire in October as stipulated in the 2015 international nuclear deal, which the Trump administration withdrew from in 2018. The Trump administration has said a main reason for leaving the 2015 nuclear deal, which restricted Iran’s nuclear program in return for a lifting of sanctions, was that it didn’t curb Tehran’s missile program.
