Iran: Brand new missile depot unveiled

Iran, Islamic Republic of, Location unknown
January 5, 2016 at 16:03 GMT -00:00 · Published

A newly-unveiled underground missile depot was inaugurated by Speaker of Parliament of Iran Ali Larijani, with Iranian authorities publishing footage of the unknown location on Tuesday.

The facility where the ballistic missiles are being stored and tested was unveiled in a one-minute video broadcasted by state television. Earlier on October 2015, The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) released similar footage showing a series of gigantic tunnels, located 500m (1640ft) underground in an unspecified location.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced that Iran would take the final steps to implement the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in mid-December after the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency's (AIEA) 12-year-long probe into the country's past nuclear activities came to an end. The closure of the investigation marked a milestone towards lifting international sanctions against Iran.

Iranian authorities expect Western sanctions to be lifted in mid-January. The move will enable the country to resume trade via international financial systems, receive $100 billion of its frozen assets and re-enter the international oil markets.
