Israel’s UN Envoy: Iran Missile Tests ‘Gross Violation’ of Nuclear Deal

Danny Danon

The Times of Israel reports:

The recent Iranian tests of ballistic missiles are a “gross violation” of a United Nations resolution that supported last year’s nuclear agreement with Tehran, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon told the Security Council in a letter Friday.
