Iran Conducts Successful Test Of 2,000 Km-Range Ballistic Missile Amid Rising Tensions

Iran on Thursday successfully conducted a test of a 2,000 km-range ballistic missile, according to Iranian state media.

This development comes just two days after the chief of Israel's armed forces hinted at possible "action" against Iran due to concerns over its nuclear program.

Iran, known for having one of the largest missile programs in the Middle East, asserts that its weapons are capable of reaching Israel and U.S. bases in the region.

Despite opposition from the United States and European countries, Iran has reiterated its commitment to further developing its "defensive" missile program.

Iranian Defense Minister Mohammadreza Ashtiani conveyed a message to Iran's enemies and friends following the missile test.

He emphasized that the country is determined to defend itself and its achievements, while also expressing a desire to contribute to regional stability.

Iran sees its ballistic missiles as a crucial deterrent and a means of retaliation against the United States, Israel, and other potential regional adversaries.
