Iran reportedly test fired two ballistic missiles with the phrase, “Israel must be wiped out,” in Hebrew painted on the sides.
Some analysts said it’s meant as a show of force coinciding with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel.
Biden met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, one of the most outspoken critics of the U.S.-led Iranian nuclear deal with all its ramifications.
“A nuclear-armed Iran is an absolutely unacceptable threat to Israel, to the region and the United States,” Biden said, without directly referencing the latest test launch or the message written on the missiles.
“If, in fact, they break the deal, we will act,” he added.
Some U.N. officials said the Iranians used ballistic missile technology forbidden by a Security Council resolution.
