Israel reports drop in Iranian ballistic missile launches

27 November 2019

Iran launched three ballistic missiles between March and June this year, the Israeli ambassador to the UN informed the Security Council in a letter released on 27 November.

Ambassador Danny Danon said an unidentified missile was launched from Jalnabad in March, a Fateh-110 variant from Kuh Gitchen (presumably meaning Kuh-e Gitcheh), and a Zolfaghar from an unidentified location in May.

"The Fateh-110 and Zolfaghar missiles cross the threshold of 300 km range and 500 kg payload and, therefore, violate Annex B restrictions on Iran's ballistic activity," he said, referring to UN Security Council Resolution 2231. "It is imperative that these violations be reflected in the upcoming report on the implementation of Resolution 2231."
