Congress Looking Into New Iranian Sanctions After Ballistic Missile Tests Marked For Israel

After a series of ballistic missile tests conducted by Iran last week, violating the UN Security Agreement but not the most recent nuclear deal, Congress is looking into imposing new sanctions on the regime.

Today, the UN Security Counsel held a meeting at the request of the United States to go over options regarding how to deal with Iran's most recent launch. 

The United Nations Security Council was huddling Monday in a meeting called by the U.S. to discuss Iran’s “provocative and destabilizing” launch last week of long-range missiles marked with threats to Israel.

The closed meeting was in addition to one already scheduled in which the Security Council was to discuss the latest developments in Syria. The U.S., which brokered the deal with Iran that ended most international sanctions in exchange for Tehran’s pledge not to pursue nuclear weapons, called the meeting.

The missiles launched last week by the Iranians had the words, "Israel must be wiped off the map," written in Hebrew before launch, proving once again the Iranians haven't changed their hostile positions despite being brought into the modern, western world through the 2015 nuclear agreement. Israel has called on the international community to punish Iran for the tests.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday called on world powers to punish Iran after the country test-fired two ballistic missiles emblazoned with the phrase "Israel must be wiped out" in Hebrew.

Netanyahu said he instructed Israel's Foreign Ministry to direct the demand to the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany — the countries that signed the deal lifting sanctions on Iran in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear program.

Meanwhile, the Iranians have threatened to walk away from the nuclear deal all together if new sanctions are imposed for their missile test violations.
