Reuters News Agency: Iran has sent hundreds of ballistic missiles to Russia

Reuters news agency reports that Iran has sent hundreds of ballistic missiles to Russia.

Reuters, citing six informed sources, claimed that Iran has supplied a large number of powerful ground-to-ground ballistic missiles to Russia. Both Iran and Russia are under US sanctions, and this could indicate close military cooperation between Moscow and Tehran.

Three Iranian sources told Reuters that out of about 400 missiles provided by Iran to Russia, many are of the type of Zolfaghar missiles, which are upgraded versions of short-range ballistic missiles of Fateh-110 class. Experts say these missiles, equipped with mobile launch pads, are capable of hitting targets within a range of 300 to 700 kilometers.

Reuters, in its exclusive report dated Thursday, February 21, states that Iran and the Russian Defense Ministry have not yet commented on this matter.

One senior Iranian official also mentioned that some of these missiles have been sent to Russia by ship through the Caspian Sea, while others have been transported by plane.

The restrictions of the United Nations Security Council on the exports of some missiles, drones, and other technologies from Iran ended in October. However, the United States and the European Union maintained sanctions on Iran’s ballistic missile program amid concerns about arms exports to proxy forces in the Middle East and Russia.
