Ignoring White House Warnings, Terrorist Iran Test-Fires Another Missile
The test comes the same day the White House announced it is considering a proposal that would designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization.
Iran test fired another surface to air missile Wednesday, officials told Fox news. The test, just as the last, occurred outside Semnan, about 140 miles east of Tehran.
The test comes the same day the White House announced it is considering a proposal that could lead to potentially designating Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization, according to US officials familiar with the matter.
The officials said that several US government agencies have been consulted about such a proposal, which if implemented would add to measures the United States has already imposed on individuals and entities linked to the IRGC.
The Trump administration sent a stark message to Tehran last week over their continued missile tests and support for proxy militia groups battling Saudi Arabian forces.
Speaking publicly for the first time since Donald Trump became US president, his national security adviser, former lieutenant-general Michael Flynn, said the White House was putting Iran “on notice,” and vowed to act decisively in response.
