The two-stage satellite launch took off from Iran’s Central Desert, says Revolutionary Guard.

 

Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard said Wednesday it launched a military satellite into orbit amid wider tensions with the U.S.草草影院最新地址入口, a successful launch after months of failures.

草草影院最新地址入口There was no immediate independent confirmation of the launch of the satellite, which the Guard called “Noor,” or light.

草草影院最新地址入口The Guard on its official said the satellite successfully reached an orbit of 425 kilometers above the Earth’s surface.

The two-stage satellite launch took off from Iran’s Central Desert, the Guard said, without elaborating.

The launch comes amid tensions between Tehran and Washington over its collapsing nuclear deal and after a U.S. drone strike killed Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani草草影院最新地址入口 in January.

 

Iran has suffered several failed satellite launches in recent months.

On Sunday, the Guard acknowledged it had a tense encounter with U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf草草影院最新地址入口 last week, but alleged without offering evidence that American forces sparked the incident.
