World war 3: Iran reveals underground missile bunker on national television | World | News


The clips showed a long tunnel deep under the earth full of weapons and trucks which belong to the Qiam-1 ballistic missile system, the MailOnline reports. The entrance to the bunker has posters of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani hanging next to the door. Sliding doors pull away and a ramp drops down allowing access to the underground tunnel.

The footage then shows soldiers removing the casing of a missile before moving it with a motorised crane mechanism and attaching it to the other half of the explosive device.

The bomb is then put on a trolley and manoeuvred towards another part of the tunnel.

The missile is then directed upwards towards an opening in the ceiling before being fired, leaving the tunnel engulfed in flames and smoke.

An exterior view of the bunker shows the missile leaving the underground tunnel through a spherical hole in the ground before disappearing from the location in the desert.

Iran’s foreign ministry rejected accusations made towards an ongoing summit of Muslim countries.

Saudi Arabia, Iran’s regional rival, said the country’s actions threatened stability and security of the surrounding nations.

A foreign ministry spokesman said the accusations were just a part of a program against Iran being encouraged by the US and Israel, according to the IRNA news agency.

Foreign ministry spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi said Saudi Arabia had, “continued to sow division between Islamic countries in the region, which is the wish of the Zionist regime.”

It comes as four oil tankers were damaged by explosions on May 12 off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.

On Thursday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Iran of being behind the attack in a bid to drive up oil prices.

Iran was also accused of being behind the provocations earlier this week by National Security Adviser John Bolton, who said the attacks were carried out by naval mines “almost certainly from Iran”.

Mr Bolton added: “There’s no doubt in anybody’s mind in Washington who is responsible for this.

“Who else would you think is doing it? Someone from Nepal?”

Iran has fiercely denied the allegations of its involvement.
