Russia selling missiles 'that can bring down US aircraft' to Iran

(Worthy News) - Despite a ban on arms shipments to Iran under international sanctions, Russia appears willing to proceed with the sale of advanced S-300 surface-to-air missiles to the country - in a development triggering objections from the Obama administration, the NY Post reported.

"We have long expressed our concerns over reports of the possible sale of this missile system to the Iranians," Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis told Fox News.

Russia, along with the US and others, was a party to the recently struck Iran nuclear agreement, which keeps the arms embargo in place for five more years. A State Department official told Fox News this specific S-300 missile system is not technically prohibited under United Nations sanctions or the nuclear deal. But the department does not want the sale to proceed. [ Source ]

  1. The enemy desires that we live in fear. Unbelievers have no hope nor any way to prepare for the rising tsunami of evil. Wake up. Repent. Mercifully, Jesus has given warnings and time to turn away from sin. Learn from the Persecuted church through Open Doors or Voice of the Martyrs if your pastor ignores truth.
