Iran test fired two ballistic missiles today, each allegedly with the words “Israel must be wiped out” written on them and this comes as Vice President Joe Biden is visiting Israel. It is also troubling for US officials as it appears Iran is ramping up their ballistic missile program after the big nuclear deal reached last year with the US and other world powers.
According to a semi official news agency, the missiles were fired to hit a target in the Sea of Oman nearly nine hundred miles away, a region which the US Navy patrols. That same news agency reports the head of the Revolutionary Guard’s aerospace division confirming the test was aimed at showing Israel that Iran could hit them but stressed that Iran would not fire missiles in anger or start a war with Israel.
This test along with another launch will likely be presented to the United Nations Security Council, according to a US State department spokesman.
