The ballistic missile, with a range of 1,000 kilometers, landed in Sary Shagan, a missile testing range located in Kazakhstan, he added.

While evidence mounts that Iran misrepresented their recent missile test, Israel reminds the world that the Islamic Republic remains a danger to the free world.

"We can not let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building risky missiles, and we can not abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program", Trump said in his United Nations speech.

During his speech to the United Nations on September 19, Trump harshly criticized Iran, for allegedly sponsoring terrorism, and threatened to end the US -led deal with Iran over its nuclear program, negotiated by the Obama administration. "Not much of an agreement we have!" he wrote. It included video from an on-board camera which it said showed the detachment of the cone that carries multiple warheads.

On Saturday, Iranian state television carried footage of the launch of the Khoramshahr missile, which was first displayed at a high-profile military parade in Tehran the day before.

Dunford declined to say publicly what advice he has given Trump on whether to recertify Iran's compliance with the nuclear deal.

Britain voiced concerns about the latest test.

On Monday, the Israeli defense establishment confirmed that that Jewish state's intelligence also did not observe any indications that Iran had actually tested a Khorramshahr ballistic missile, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Foreign Ministry Director-General Yuval Rotem also warned that the Islamic Republic is "directly challenging the worldwide community", making "a robust response ... imperative", the Jewish Press reported. But the missile launch was fake, according to a report by Fox News.

Iran's defense minister said on Saturday foreign pressures would not affect Iran's missile program.

Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Tuesday that Iran is adhering to its obligations under the nuclear agreement, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

He also criticized a 2015 pact that the United States and other world powers struck with Iran under which Tehran agreed to restrict its nuclear program in return for relief from economic sanctions.
