Iran conducts latest missile test in defiance of UN ban: sources

According to Western intelligence sources, Iran conducted a ballistic missile test on November 21 in violation of a UN Security Council ban. The test of the Ghadr-110, an improved version of the Shehab-3, took place at a missile test site near Chabahar in Sistan and Baluchistan province near the Pakistani border, the sources said. The weapon is said to have a range of up to 2,000 km and be capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.
Security Council Resolution 2231, which was passed in July after Tehran's nuclear deal with Western powers, forbids Iran from engaging in any ballistic missile work for eight years. It followed a 2010 resolution that banned all Iranian ballistic missile tests.
Tehran also violated the UN ban by testing a ballistic missile on October 10.
