Tehran has unveiled its latest weapon. They have shared rare footage of a secretive underground complex where Iranian missiles are being built as we speak. Iran has promised to continue on with its missile program despite objections from the West. These kinds of facilities cost billions of dollars to maintain and produce this kind of advanced weaponry. One might wonder how Iran has progressed in such an industry so rapidly.
RT reported that Iran’s new missile was showcased on Thursday, with top military officials unveiling the weapon and, in an unprecedented move, showing the subterranean factory. The location of the facility was not disclosed, for obvious reasons.
The facility was described by the Iranian media as an “underground city” – and its scale appears to be quite impressive. Footage from the scene shows vast corridors, full of various missile parts, including warheads, all at different stages of assembly.
The videos also showed workers at the plant fulfilling tasks, from merely spinning nuts to fine-tuning some tiny electronic devices, thought to be parts of the missiles’ guidance system.

The new missile, called Dezful, is said to be an upgraded version of the Zolfaghar ballistic missile. It boasts a longer range of 1,000 km – compared to 700 – and has “twice” the destructive power. Iran’s media has also released footage of the new missile’s tests, said to have been successful.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said, “Europeans talk of limiting our defensive capability while they have the audacity [to allow] their offensive power to be used to attack innocent people all over the world.”
The bloc said it was “gravely” concerned by Tehran’s “ballistic missile activity,” urging the country to “refrain” from it. What do you think? Is President correct in calling the “Iran nuclear deal the worst deal ever made”?
