Iran has gradually improved its cyber abilities and developed more advanced ballistic missiles since the singing of the nuclear deal with world powers in July 2015, a new report from the US Defense Department said.
The Islamic Republic now has a “substantial inventory of missiles capable of reaching targets throughout the region, including US military bases and Israel,” the Pentagon said in an unclassified summary, Bloomberg News reported.
The report issued by the Pentagon is part an annual review mandated by Congress from the defense agency as a result of the nuclear deal being approved last year.
In addition to boosting its cyber and missile technology, the Pentagon report also said that Iran seeks to continue to control strategic regions in the Middle East such as the Strait of Hormuz between the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea. The report noted that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards are also trying to “support and carry out” terror attacks to advance their strategic interests.
