Iran launched nine missiles on Wednesday. One was a long range missile that can reach Israel.The demonstration was meant to show that Iran is ready to retaliate against any attack, from the United States or Israel, on its nuclear facilities.

An Iranian Military Commander said they have hundreds, or even thousands, of missiles ready. The U.S. condemned the test.
