Tensions between the United States and Iran are ramping up as Iran continues to conduct ballistic missile tests in its region.
It is reported that Iran recently increased its military budget to include further development of long-range missiles.
United Nations’ resolutions 2231 bars Iran from testing ballistic missiles for a period of eight years, but tests are occurring. The nation claims it has 100,000 missiles pointed at Israel and that it would take only seven minutes for a missile to hit Tel Aviv.
Trump has stated, “Those ballistic missiles, with a range of 1,250 miles, were designed to intimidate not only Israel but also intended to frighten Europe, and someday maybe hit even the United States. We’re not going to let that happen.”
Last week, President Trump responded with sanctions against the nation but the Iranian government vows to continue the launching of what they call “roaring missiles.”
