(Worthy News) - U.S. defense officials believe Iran is sitting on a stockpile of thousands of ballistic missiles and powerful munitions, following the country's attack early Wednesday on American coalition forces in Iraq.
Iran launched 15 ballistic missiles into Iraq -- 10 of which hit Al-Assad Air Base. One missile hit a military base in Erbil and four missiles failed, officials said.
The Pentagon estimates that Iran is in possession of more than 2,000 ballistic missiles and has devoted resources to growing its long-range artillery rocket forces, according to defense officials. The rogue nation is also said to have the most diverse missile arsenal in the Middle East. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
