Iran fires two missiles marked with ‘Israel must be wiped out’

Tehran: Iran`s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Wednesday successfully test-fired two ballistic missiles in line with the country`s defence doctrine.

The missiles dubbed Qadr-H were test-fired during the ongoing large-scale drills, codenamed Eqtedar-e-Velayat, Iran`s Press TV reported.

Earlier, Iran on Tuesday test-fired two ballistic missiles during the drills.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest on Tuesday said that Iran`s recent ballistic missile tests did not violate an international nuclear agreement.

Also on Tuesday, US State Department spokesman John Kirby echoed Earnest that the tests, if confirmed, will not be a breach of the Iran nuclear deal. However, he warned that the US will not “turn a blind eye to this”.

Separately, under UN Security Council Resolution 1929, Iran was prohibited from working on ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear warheads.
