Iran unveils new missile with 500 km range



YNet News: “DUBAI – Iran on Saturday unveiled a new surface-to-surface missile it said could strike targets with pin-point accuracy within a range of 500 km (310 miles) and it said military might was a precondition for peace and effective diplomacy.

The defense ministry’s unveiling of the solid-fuel missile, named Fateh 313, came little more than a month after Iran and world powers reached a deal that requires Tehran to abide by new limits on its nuclear program in return for Western governments easing economic sanctions.

But Iran has said it will not follow parts of the nuclear deal that restricts its military capabilities, a stance reaffirmed by President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday.

We will buy, sell and develop any weapons we need and we will not ask for permission or abide by any resolution for that,” he said in a speech at the unveiling ceremony broadcast live on state television.”

 Opinion: Could it be any clearer? The Iran nuclear deal has already been trashed.

The distance from Damascus to Tel Aviv is 132 miles and the distance from Beirut, Lebanon, Hezbollah’s command center, is 134 miles.

Both cities are part of the Psalm 83 alliance and Damascus has an appointment with Isaiah 17:1, 14.
