Iran fires 2 missiles marked with ‘Israel must be wiped out’ 

One Security Council diplomat said the tests don’t violate the nuclear deal, but “there are obligations on Iran” that stem from the resolution and “they need to abide by those obligations.” he said. Another diplomat acknowledged, “We’re not mounting an argument that it’s a binding obligation.”The two diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the tests, said the council still has to consider the reported launches and if verified determine whether it is a violation and if so what action to take.
