  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

Report from Iran: Successful Test Launch of Missile that Endangers Israel

Iranian media reports a successful test launch this morning of a ballistic missile that endangers Israel and U.S. bases in the Persian Gulf. This follows the resolution imposing sanctions on Iran fuel providers. The U.S. yesterday announced a test of their missile defense system against Iranian missiles.

In high gear: Against the backdrop of growing tension between Iran with its nuclear ambitions and the Western countries, Iran continues to provocative, and Wednesday morning claims to have conducted a successful test launch of a long-range ballistic missile, which endangers Israel and the United States bases in the Persian Gulf; so reported Iran’s state television.

According to Iran’s Al-Alam Arabic-language satellite television, Iran successfully test-fired an improved version of its Sajjil-2 medium-range missile which it says can reach targets inside Israel. The Sajjil is a solid fuel, high-speed missile with a range of about 2,000 kilometers, placing Israel well within range and reaching as far away as southeastern Europe with greater precision than earlier models.

However, the head of the Space Project at the Fisher Institute, Tal Inbar, argues that it is impossible to believe the report, because although the missile is in development, in the past Iran has already claimed such tests were carried out. "Until we see pictures and videos about the launch we cannot make a full examination, since in the past they also claimed a missile launch.”
 
The test was reportedly conducted just this morning, after the U.S. House of Representatives approved the imposition of sanctions on foreign providers of refined oil to Iran. The Islamic republic scorned this move, and the vice president of the Iran National Oil Company said that “the new sanctions could not succeed because Iran has a long list of suppliers."
 
Earlier it was revealed that Iran obtained materials and components whose sole aim is an atomic bomb, and these items have no use for nuclear development for research or civilian purposes. Yesterday (Tuesday) the United States announced that they will conduct a drill of their missile defense against Iranian missiles next month, at a cost of approximately 150 million shekels. Usually, the drill tests readiness for an attack from North Korea. Likewise, earlier this week a British newspaper revealed that Iran had successfully reached the final stage of formation of a nuclear bomb.
 
Escalation in the relations between Iran and the West gains momentum, and with each passing day more information is added to illustrate the danger from the Iranian enemy.
