Iran Constructs New Underground Missile Facility

Iran’s Fars News Agency reports that Tehran has constructed a third underground facility for the production of missiles. Fars quoted Amirali Hajizadeh, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ airspace division saying, “Iran’s third underground factory has been built by the Guards in recent years … We will continue to further develop our missile capabilities forcefully.” This declaration comes shortly after the United States imposed a fresh round of sanctions on Tehran’s ballistic missile program.
