After the US imposed sanctions on Iran for the missile test they performed, today (Saturday) Iran’s Revolutionary Guard performed a military exercise, which included its missile and radar systems.

“Different types of domestically produced radar and missile systems, command and control centers, and cyber warfare systems will be used in this exercise,” the Guards’ website stated. In addition, Iran itself decided to impose sanctions on the US: “In response to the new move by the United States of America and as a reciprocal action, (Iran) will impose legal limitations for some American individuals and companies that have had a role in the creation and support of extreme terrorist groups in the region.”

“The Trump Administration will no longer tolerate Iran’s provocations that threaten our interests,” stated National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. “The days of turning a blind eye to Iran’s hostile and belligerent actions toward the United States and the world community are over.”
