According to German media today, Iran would stand accused of having carried out significantly more missile tests this year than earlier reported. In addition, those missiles could now be deployed to reach the European Union.
The German newspaper Welt am Sonntag says it has seen documents from "Western intelligence services."
If the information is correct, though it is still unclear exactly where the information comes from and whether it is reliable, Tehran could thus be violating the UN resolution on the international nuclear agreement.

According to the information, which would have been confirmed by various sources, Iran certainly fired at least seven medium-range missiles in 2018. Also, five short-range missiles and cruise missiles would have been fired at least five times.
The nuclear agreement with Iran was signed in 2015 by the five veto forces within the UN Security Council and Germany. It made it possible for Iran to use nuclear power, but at the same time ensured that Iran would not develop nuclear weapons.
The US, concerned about the growing influence of Iran in the Middle East, withdrew from the deal in May of this year.
The US has since imposed sanctions on Iran gradually. According to US President Donald Trump, Iran is not upholding it’s part of the deal.
The other countries that signed the agreement decided to respect it anyway. The international nuclear agency in November still claimed that Iran was sticking to the promises it undersigned in the agreement. If German media reports are correct, this has thus now been breached.
Meanwhile Iranian President Rouhani claimed that the imposed US sanctions could lead to attacks on the west if they are continued: “I warn those who impose sanctions that if Iran’s ability to fight drugs and terrorism are affected ... you will not be safe from a deluge of drugs, asylum seekers, bombs and terrorism.”
“We have been just as determined in the fight against terrorism ... sacrificing hundreds of valuable troops and spending millions of dollars annually,” President Rouhani said.
“We don’t expect the West to pay their share, but they should know that sanctions hurt Iran’s capacity to fight drugs and terrorism.”
