- Iran Fires Cruise Missiles During Naval Drill After Israel Threatened Preemptive Strike
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
Iran is currently in the midst of two-day naval drills in the Gulf of Oman which began Wednesday. Crucially also at a time of soaring tensions with the US and Israel, and with less than a week to go till the end of the Trump presidency which is stacked with Iran hawks led by Pompeo, Iran has fired cruise missiles as part of the provocative naval exercise.
“State TV showed footage of missiles being launched from both land units and ships at sea but didn’t elaborate on their range or other details. In July, Iran said it test-fired cruise missiles with a range of some 280 kilometers (some 275 miles),” the Associated Press reports, citing Iran state media.
