Iran Successfully Launches A Military Satellite


Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) claims that they have successfully launched a military satellite called Noor (“Light”) following the increasing tensions with the U.S.

The IRGC made an official announcement on their site on April 22nd, stating that the two-stage satellite launch took place in Iran’s Central Desert. It is believed to approach an orbit of 264 miles above the Earth, reports The Telegraph.

They also claim to use an innovative satellite carrier called Ghased (“Messenger”) to blast Noor off into space. 

It is Iran’s first successful attempt to set off the military satellite operation in months.

The relationship between Iran and America has dramatically worsened after a US drone strike killed IRGC General  Qassem Soleimani back in January.
