In yet another sign that the year-old nuclear deal with Iran was unsuccessful, the Islamic Republic has just tested a new nuclear-capable missile. The Jerusalem Post reports that the Iranian launch violates a U.N. resolution barring Iran from such activities:

US officials say that Iran has conducted a ballistic missile test in violation of the UN resolution put in place after the Iran nuclear deal.

Officials told Fox News on Monday, that the test occurred outside  Semnan, about 140 miles east of Tehran, on Sunday.

The missile in question was the Khorramshahr medium-range ballistic missile, which the officials said flew 600 miles before exploding, in a failed test of a reentry vehicle.

The test was in direct violation of UN resolution 2231, which stated that Iran could not conduct such acts.
