Did Iran Violate Nuclear Deal With Recent Test?

Iran test fired two types of medium-range ballistic missiles on Wednesday, extending a barrage of tests this week following vows by officials to press ahead with its missile program despite U.S. pressure to curtail it.


Iran insists its missile test this week did not violate the nuclear deal. A Iranian spokesman said the missiles “were merely for legitimate defense,” though two were decked with the words, “Israel must be destroyed” and have a range of 2,000 km.

Israel denounced the test, saying the missiles could be fitted with nuclear warheads, thus violating last year’s nuclear accord. US officials called the test “provocative,” but not a violation.
