The Islamic Republic of Iran has unveiled new 900-mile-range missiles known as the ‘khaibar buster,’ which could target American sites in the Middle East as well as Israel.

The missile is named after a Jewish castle in the early days of Islam that was conquered by Muslim forces headed by Prophet Mohammed.

Mohammad Bagheri, the chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces, identified it as a strategic, ‘long-range’ missile.

‘The adversaries of the Revolution and the Islamic Republic do not understand anything but the language of power and force,’ he declared during the unveiling.

It was unveiled during a visit by the chief of the Guards’ aerospace department, Amirali Hajizadeh, to a surface-to-surface missile base of the Guards’ air force.

The announcement comes at a crucial time, as Iran and Western powers meet in Vienna to discuss reviving the 2015 nuclear agreement.

‘I see no way to stop Iran’s progress other than reentering this deal,’ Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), chair of the Foreign Relations Committee’s Middle East panel told Politico’s NatSec Daily.

‘And I left the briefing more certain than ever that we better be serious about trying to get back into an agreement.’

Iran has pushed ahead with producing enriched uranium since President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal four years ago.
