Iran has reportedly inaugurated a new underground missile storage facility.

The new missile storage facility was inaugurated by Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard on Monday.

This was reported by the country’s state TV.

The TV report showed footage of scores of missiles in an enclosed space resembling an underground corridor.

Iran claims to have missiles that can travel up to 2,000 kilometers, placing much of the Middle East, including Israel, within range.

The missile storage facility has been touted by many as “missile city”.

The US and its Western allies see Iran’s missile program as a threat.

Iran has developed its ballistic missile program as a deterrent, especially as a UN arms embargo prevents it from buying high-tech weapons systems.
