JNS.orgThe Israeli satellite imaging company ImageSat released images from Iran revealing a new nuclear development site.

The images show what appears to be a new missile launcher that stands 89 feet tall and is capable of launching a nuclear missile to Israel or Europe, according to a report by Israel’s Channel 2. Among the new nuclear developments pictured was a large long-range missile, never seen before in the West. The missile is powerful enough to launch a satellite or a manned spacecraft, the report said.

These nuclear developments are taking place while Iran is subject to sanctions for its nuclear program and while Iran’s nuclear negotiations with world powers continue.

  • Israel’s criticism of other countries acquiring long range or nuclear capabilities is like a wh ore going into a church to give a lecture about ethics!!!!!!!! Israel has had nuclear weapons since the early 1960’s & the means to deliver them via long range missiles. What’s Israel complaining about, a disease IT ALREADY HAS?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh boooy!

    That center is the official “Iranian Space Center” from which Iranian satellite carriers are launched. Iran has launched a few satellites to space from that same site since 2009.

    It has always been visible on Google maps… so what’s this renewed propaganda without even mentioning that it is about Iran space center?

    Obvious… Israel will periodically try to undermine the negotiations… and to brainwash uninformed public.

    And by the way, there is absoluteness no missile on that launch pad (not yet, and not in the published photos). That supposedly missile is part of the assembly tower. The launch tower is behind the assembly tower.

    During the assembly, the missile is inside the assembly tower and cannot be seen. After that it will be transferred to launch tower from the left side (i.e. toward the launch tower). The light color thing cannot be a missile because it is in the opposite side of the assembly tower.
