Iran has test-fired another ballistic missile, the latest in a spate of tests following the implementation of the nuclear deal with world powers.

Iran's semi-official Tasnim news agency Monday quoted Gen. Ali Abdollahi, deputy chief of army headquarters, as saying that the test-firing of the missile, with a range of 2,000 kilometers, or 1,250 miles, was carried out two weeks ago.

Iran, which insists the tests do not violate the deal, is likely seeking to demonstrate that it's pushing ahead with its ballistic program despite scaling back the nuclear program following the deal that led to the lifting of international sanction on Tehran.

In March, Iran test-fired two ballistic missiles — one emblazoned with the phrase "Israel must be wiped out" in Hebrew — that set off an international outcry.
