US Denies Iran’s Ballistic Missile Test Launch

US intelligence radars and sensors “picked up no indication” of an Iranian ballistic missile launch in the days surrounding a reported test, according to a Trump administration official familiar with the latest US assessment. Iranian reports that the nation tested a new ballistic missile so far does not appear to be true, the official claimed, CNN reported. “As far as we can see, it did not happen.” According to a Sunday report by Financial Tribune, Iran released footage of the successful test-launch of its new ballistic missile, Khorramshahr, a few hours after it was unveiled during a military parade in Tehran. Video footage aired by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting on Friday showed the missile’s launch from an unknown location, the report added. US President Donald Trump rushed as usual to fire a tweet about the apparent launch on Saturday: “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 US official did not know if Trump received an intelligence briefing about the launch before sending the tweet.
