On August 31, Reuters reported that Iran has transferred tens of Zelzal, Fateh-110, and Zolfaghar ballistic missiles to Shi’ite proxies in Iraq over the past few months. Iran may also be developing missile production infrastructure in Iraq. According to some sources reported by the news wire, “a decision was made some 18 months ago to use militias to produce missiles in Iraq but activity had ramped up in the last few months, including with the arrival of missile launchers.” The Zelzal has a range of 125-200 km; Fateh-100, a range of 200-300 km; the Zolfaghar, a range of 700 km.
