Iran announced that their long-range missile Qader's trial at naval exercises in the Gulf has proved quite successful. The announcement is said to be having hidden messages for Israel and the US.
Some say the trial is an indication for Israel and the US that if they would try to show their military muscle power on them, then they would also not sit quietly and could even ruin their bases.
Since long, the US has been suspecting that Iran has been strengthening its atomic powers, so it could use them against western countries when needed. The development has somehow, to a great extent, strengthened its belief.
Deputy Navy Commander Mahmoud Mousavi said: "We have test fired a long-range shore-to-sea missile called Qader (capable), which managed to successfully destroy predetermined targets in the Gulf". But they find no reality in US claims. Moreover they said if US would not stop spreading such rumors then they would stop supplying oil through the Strait of Hormuz.
He said that such rumors are affecting their terms with oil exporters and they would not tolerate that. But before Iran could stop supplying its oil to western countries, the European Union is thinking about following the footsteps of America that has already banned import of Iranian crude.
Iran said Qader's success has given then boost to test another missile named Nour. It is not a long range missile and its range is 200 kilometers. They are thinking about testing it as soon as possible.
On the other side, the US fifth fleet said they are determined to not allow import of Iranian crude. Israel and the US Governments said that till now, they have not decided any military action against Iran. But if some situation arises before them, then they would also not fear to attack on Iran.
