Iran has built third underground ballistic missile factory

Iran has built a third underground missile plant, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps's Air Force, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh is quoted by the Fars news agency 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 has built a third underground factory for producing ballistic missiles, according to the Fars News Agency.

Trump imposed new sanctions against the country in response to its recent missile launches, prompting Iran to sanction nine American individuals and companies for alleged human rights violations and cooperation with Israel. "And Iran would do well not to test the resolve of this new president", Vice President Mike Pence said at the time.

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

Trump previously said in a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv that Iran should have thanked the United States for the 2015 nuclear accord between Tehran and world powers because it led to the lifting of sanctions.

"A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian", Francis said . But despite their previous disagreements, many expect a "pretty standard meeting" between a head of state and the pontiff.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told lawmakers on Wednesday, May 24, that his department would work to increase sanctions pressure on Iran, Syria and North Korea and is reviewing licenses needed for Boeing Co and Airbus to sell aircraft to Iran.

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

Iran has spent years building a nuclear program with the goal of producing a weapon capable of reaching Israel, according to global observers.

"We systematically build up our defense capabilities".

In his interview, Hajizadeh said he was not concerned by the recent arms deal to its Saudi enemies, as he was "confident" that the weapons would be used not against the Islamic Republic, but against Israel.

US President Donald Trump on May 17 extended wide sanctions relief for Iran under the 2015 global nuclear deal.
