State-run media in Iran released footage which purported to show the successful test fire of a new medium-range ballistic missile shortly after making its debut in public during a military parade in Tehran.

The missile, called the Khorramshahr, bears similarities to a North Korean ballistic missile called the Musudan, and is said to be able to travel over 1,250 miles while carrying a nuclear warhead. North Korea has been known to export weapons technology, and this was likely behind President Trump’s tweet on Friday night where he said: “Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel. They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!”

The controversial “Iran Nuclear Deal” prohibits the development of nuclear weapons, but does not prevent the development of other missile systems. Previous United Nations resolutions do specifically ban Iran from developing ballistic missiles, but only on those designed solely to deliver nuclear weapons.
