The Ballistic missile project, entitled “Payam Satellite”, launched on January 15, 2019, failed to locate the satellite in Earth’s orbit.
#Iran Regime said it conducted a satellite launch, but the rocket failed to reach orbit.

Other countries in the world, including France, condemned the missile test as a violation of UNSC’s resolution 2231.
“France recalls that the Iranian missile program (does) not conform with U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231,” Foreign ministry spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll told reporters in a daily briefing.
It was a scandal while the Mullah Rouhani(Iran regime’s president), in his speech at Gonbad-e-Kavous city, told a ridiculous story of the impending launch of the “Payam Satellite” by the regime to space.
Mullah Rohani – January 14, 2019:
“We are a country that will launch two satellites in the coming days, God willing. The “Payam satellite”which is built by our own. The satellite and he missile carrying the satellite is made by our own university, will pass 6 times on the top of our head on a day!”
Following this claim, the State Department, in response to Rouhani’s announcement, said the Iranian regime should immediately refrain from carrying out nuclear-related missile activities, including missile tests. The missile program of this regime violates United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.
In defiance of the international community & UNSCR 2231, #Iran’s regime fired off a space launch vehicle today. The launch yet again shows that Iran is pursuing enhanced missile capabilities that threaten Europe and the Middle East.

According to the Iranian regime, the Mullahs continue to conduct ballistic missile tests for missile launchers to upgrade their missile program.
Iranian Resistance Information also indicates that the launch of the “Payam Satellite Missile” launched on January 15, 2019, and the mid-range ballistic missile, before December 1, 2018, was confirmed by Khamenei and a high security decision of the regime.
The launch of all “Shahab 3” missiles and similar missiles, “Sajjil” and “Ghadr” missiles, and satellites, all of which can carry nuclear warheads, can only be carried out with the approval of Khamenei.
In this regard, Maj. Gen. Hassan Firouz Abadi, former head of the regime’s armed forces headquarters on November 13, 2016, admitted that “If Khamenei allowed us, the missile will be fire, If he does not allow us, the missiles will not be fired. if Khamenei decides, the missile will be launched”.
It should be noted that the launch of all satellite missiles is carried out by the air force of the Revolutionary Guards(IRGC). The missiles in the IRGC Air-Space Agency were built by IRGC specialists and the Mullah’s regime is trying to pretend to be a so-called “scientific project” by putting civilians names.
It is interesting to note that the reason for the establishment of the
Air-Space Force of IRGC is the expansion of the regime’s missile activities as one of the strategic objectives of the regime to protect the regime and to pursue its interventionist goals in the countries of the region and elsewhere in the world.
Remember that the Brigade Gen. of the Revolutionary Guard, Hassan Tehrani Moghadam, who was the highest missile specialist in the IRGC, on November 22, 2011, in a garrison of the Revolutionary Guards called “Moddarres” in the “Bidgane Mellard” District, south-eastern Tehran, due to the syndetic in the electric system of Missile warhead was killed.
Our fellow countrymen in the east of Tehran heard it’s voice, and they must remember that the garrison parts were scattered around it for miles around.
In the explosion, the Revolutionary Guard lost some of its highest experts in addition to Hassan Tehrani Moghadam.
It is clear that conducting missile tests, with global condemnation and subsequent implications for the regime, is the overwhelming need of the Mullahs to survive and cover the weakness and fragility of the regime in the current critical situation and the risk of overthrowing the mullahs regime.
Over 19 million people in #Iran are living in slums, yet the regime spends billions on:
-Yemen's Houthi militias
-A completely unnecessary nuclear program
