As the international community weighing the effectiveness of sanctions against Iran, Tehran is moving ahead with its nuclear program and it has successfully test fired an upgraded version of a short-range missile.
According to Iranian officials, the new and improved ‘Fatah-100’ surface-to-surface short-range missile can make a pinpoint strike against a target up to a 300km (180 miles) away.
The international community continues debating the reality of Iran’s ongoing nuclear efforts, with some accepting Iran’s explanation, that the nuclear program is for scientific, medical and educational purposes, not towards building a nuclear weapon.
Back in Israel, officials over recent days have released statements hinting at an imminent military offensive with government officials still of the opinion that the window of opportunity to prevent Iran from building an atomic bomb is rapidly closing.
