Iran tests high tech missile in defiance of US sanctions: video


Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps held a military exercise to test missile and radar systems, in the northeastern province of Semnan, Saturday, with footage shown on state television a day after US President Donald Trump’s administration imposed sanctions on Tehran over the recent ballistic-missile test.

The Revolutionary Guards official website said that the aim of the military exercise was to “showcase the power of Iran’s revolution and to dismiss the sanctions.”

General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps of Aerospace Force (Farsi): “I can definitely announce that the skeleton of the sanctions of enemy’s defence has been smashed today; thanks God we are self-sufficient.”
