“We are aware of reports of a projectile launched from Iran, and have no further comment at this time,” said U.S. administration official.
"The test of the Shahab-3 comes amid heightened tensions between Tehran and the west", reads the story.
June 13, explosions shook two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The blasts caused fire on Kokuka Courageous and Front Altair; the crews were evacuated to Iran, with no casualties reported.
June 14, U.S. accused Iran of attacking the tankers. Tehran called these announcements unfounded.
As it was reported earlier, the governments and leaders of the UK, France and Germany made a joint statement, asking the U.S. and Iran to restore the dialogue for the sake of stopping the escalation over the nuclear deal.
Besides, German, French and American leaders condemned the attacks that occurred in the Persian Gulf and other locations and expressed concerns about the worsening security situation in the region.
