DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran unveiled a new underground missile depot on Tuesday inaugurated by the speaker of parliament, Ali Larijani, Tasnim news agency, which is close to the Revolutionary Guards, reported.

A one-minute video of the facility broadcast on state television showed Iran’s Emad precision-guided ballistic missile which was tested in October.

The United States has said Emad would be capable of carrying a nuclear payload and violates a 2010 U.N. Security Council resolution.
