Iran Unveils New Ballistic Missile, Plans for More Arms

The Iranian government unveiled a new ballistic missile this week, and announced plans for purchasing more arms from Russia. Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, said his country “will buy, sell and develop any weapons and not ask for permission or abide by any resolution.”

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• British diplomats, speaking at the reopening of their embassy in Tehran, said Iranian leaders are softening their stance toward Israel — a claim Iran’s state news outlet said was false.
• The Russian government has jailed two Ukrainians on what the U.S. State Department is calling trumped up terror charges.
• The Islamic State (ISIS) has destroyed yet another ancient site in Syria dating back to the Roman era.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on the heroes who stood up to evil.
