Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) unveiled a new missile system, which its Commander Major General Hossein Salami claimed, “is capable of consecutively launching multiple long-range ballistic missiles.”
Gen. Salami introduced the latest domestically produced launcher in blatant defiance of the international community, since use of ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear payloads is in direct breach of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.
The IRGC was cited by Iranian regime-controlled media as saying, “Our missiles make our enemies shiver and force them into retreat,” while further proclaiming that “if need be, this formidable program will impose (Iran’s) political will upon them.”
Gen. Salami also revealed that he ordered the IRGC Aerospace Division Chief Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh to “constantly keep hands on the trigger.”
According to a European intelligence official tasked with monitoring the Iranian sector of operations, “the unveiling of the ballistic missile launcher was deliberately performed in parallel with the U.S. Presidential elections” – despite repeated insistence by the Ayatollah Regime that it has no interest over which candidate will win.
In related developments, the United States Justice Department released a statement announcing the seizure of “27 Additional Domain Names Used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to Further a Global, Covert Influence Campaign.”
Washington charged that all of the confiscated domains “were being used in violation of U.S. sanctions targeting both the Government of Iran and the IRGC.”
According to the official Justice Dept. Statement, 4 of the domains “purported to be genuine news outlets but were actually controlled by the IRGC” aimed at American audiences in an effort to “covertly influence U.S. policy and public opinion ,” while the remaining 23 “targeted audiences in other parts of the world.”
