Reports of an Iranian ballistic missile test over the weekend are a truly alarming development. If true, this would represent a violation of international law and U. N. Security resolutions. For that, Iran must be held accountable. If this reported ballistic missile testing action is not met with a clear and determined rebuke, Iran will take that silence as tacit consent to further destabilize a region already plagued by violence and escalating threats of it.

 U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement on Iran’s reported ballistic missile test:

“Reports of an Iranian ballistic missile test over the weekend are a truly alarming development. If true, this would represent a violation of international law and U. N. Security resolutions. For that, Iran must be held accountable. If this reported ballistic missile testing action is not met with a clear and determined rebuke, Iran will take that silence as tacit consent to further destabilize a region already plagued by violence and escalating threats of it. While the test appears to have failed, my hope is that the U.S. and its allies will hold Iran accountable at the U.N. Security Council, and show its leaders that there are consequences for such actions.”
