    Iran says it has built third underground ballistic missile factory

    Iran has built a third underground ballistic missile production factory and will keep developing its missile program, the semi-official Fars news agency quoted a senior commander of the elite Revolutionary Guard as saying.

    The development is likely to fuel tensions with the United States in a week when President Donald Trump, on his first foreign trip, has called Iran a sponsor of militant groups and a threat to countries across the Middle East.

    "Iran's third underground factory has been built by the Guards in recent years ... We will continue to further develop our missile capabilities forcefully," Fars quoted Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Guard’s airspace division, as saying.

    Since taking office in January, Trump has imposed new sanctions on Iran in response to its recent missile launches, putting Tehran "on notice".

    Iran has reacted defiantly. Newly re-elected pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday: "Iran does not need the permission of the United States to conduct missile tests".

    Iran's Sunni Muslim Gulf neighbors and its arch-enemy Israel have expressed concerns over Tehran's ballistic missile program, seeing it as a threat to regional security.

    In 2015, Iranian state TV aired footage of underground tunnels with ready-to-fire missiles on the back of trucks, saying the facility was one of hundreds of underground missile bases around the country.

    "It is natural that our enemies America and the Zionist regime (Israel) are angry with our missile program because they want Iran to be in a weak position," Hajizadeh said.

    Most nuclear-related sanctions on Iran were lifted last year after Tehran fulfilled commitments under a 2015 deal with major powers to scale back its nuclear program - an agreement that Trump has frequently criticized as being too soft on Tehran. But Iran remains subject to a U.N. arms embargo and other restrictions.

    Two months after implementation of the deal, the Guards test-fired two ballistic missiles that it said were designed to be able to hit Israel.

    Iran says its missile program is not in defiance with a U.N. resolution that calls on it to refrain from work on ballistic missiles designed to deliver nuclear weapons for up to eight years.

    "Along with improving our defense capabilities, we will continue our missile tests and missile production. The next missile to be produced is a surface-to-surface missile," said Hajizadeh, without elaborating.

    In retaliation for the new U.S. sanctions over its ballistic missile program, Iran this month added nine American individuals and companies to its own list of 15 U.S. companies for alleged human rights violations and cooperation with Israel.

    No information, I presume that will be given in the unveiling, which is to happen "soon".

    Dezful
    which 3 hour drive next to city of
    Khorramshahr

    the second name of city of Dezful is touted as city of missiles. and it is Twin Sister cities Tyre, in south Lebanon ,





    Gen Hajizadeh is BSing . they just waiting for congress Treasury to put new missile sanctions on then
    US Senate committee passes bill to impose new sanctions on Iran
    US Senate committee approves new Iran sanctions bill
    US Announces New Iran Sanctions, But Keeps Waiving Sanctions


    then maybe if Ruhani approve it they come and show missile or missile underground factory that all it is .
    THERE IS NO new underhand missile factory and and it all depend on Rouhani administration i mean Rouhani chooses which missile to show if any or what old factroy .
    Trust me have much much much more the 3 missile factory underground .
    From what we Know about Rohani nothing will happen and nothing will be shown .
    Gen HajiZadeh try to send signal and message outside of government TO U.S and Trump that the sanction will not stop nothing

    What even is the point of these sanctions. Over the years I've heard Iran imports some foreign guidance components or composites used in solid fuel but I've always been dubious about these.

    I don't think Rouhani has that much sway over what the IRGC does.

    Quick queston if you guys have any info on it.

    Does Iran produce ballistic missiles on a regular basis? Like 50 - 100 a year or are they made in a more reactionary way like when there is an increase in threats to Iran so the IRGC will add another X amount of missiles to the stockpile in case a shooting war pops off?

    I know the actually answer is classified but I'm curious.

    Yeah, these sanctions have always puzzled me as well. I was under the firm impression that Irans ballistic missiles and missiles in general are all made in house from start to finish with Iran made components.

    These sanctions might just be for show or just extra leverage and pressure.

    it depends .
    if it there are new bases or target being built whiches pusses threat to Iran then they prduce new base silos and missile ,

    if there is new technological break true and new generation enters the service

    if old missile are obsolete needs replacing ,

    new the enemy has developed technology that make missile vulnerable to curry there job then new ones needed

    if ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I'm assuming the older missiles are broken down and the parts used for new missiles correct? Seems like the cost efficient course to take.
