IRAN rolled out its missiles in a huge military parade today – just a few days after a similar show of force by North Korea, The Sun reports.
Troops from all units of the Iranian forces held massive military parades across the country this morning to mark the National Army Day.
In a clear signal to the West, huge missiles rumbled past a platform under the eyes of President Hassan Rouhani in the capital Tehran – much like Saturday’s parade held in Pyongyang by kim Jong-un’s regime.
The military parade saw units from all arms of the military show off missiles, tanks, armoured vehicles, weaponry, drones, fighter jets and air defence systems. A banner on one missile carrier read: “Death to Israel.”
The Iranian government-linked news agenct Tasnim wrote: “Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headway in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
NORTH KOREA’S ‘WONKY MISSILES’
Terrifying new missiles proudly unveiled in a parade by North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un may be FAKE, experts claim.
The weapons, unveiled during a parade marking 105 years since the state’s found Kim Il-sung was born, caused fears around the world that the secretive nation’s nuke programme is far more advanced than previously thought.
But Chad O’Carroll, managing director of specialist service NK News, expressed doubts after seeing the nosecone of one of the final group of missiles “wobbled quite noticeably”.
And Lee Il-Woo, a senior analyst at the private Korea Defence Network, told AFP: “I suspect they all might be mock-ups aimed to impress the outside world.”
Meanwhile, BBC footage of the parade shows some of the rockets appear to have wonky nosecones.“Iran maintains that its military might poses no threat to the regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defence doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.”
Last week Russia, Syria and Iran strongly warned the United States against launching new strikes on Syria and called for an international probe into last week’s chemical attack there.
