Iran has paraded a missile with the sign ‘Death to Israel’ attached to it during a huge military parade showcasing deadly weapons this morning.
The ceremony was held in the capital Tehran and troops from all units took part to mark National Army Day in the country, but one weapon in particular looked a lot like a North Korean missile critics said was a fake at a similar parade.
The nose of a rocket mounted onto a bigger missile appears to be pointing skywards, in the same way the North Korean weapon was comically built which prompted people to take to Twitter to say it was an empty, painted box.
North Korea celebrated the 105th anniversary of the birth of the nation’s founder Kim Il-Sung on the weekend and also hosted a procession of weapons and soldier marches.
In Iran, President Hassan Rouhani delivered a speech as a conveyor belt of military might was displayed to the gathered high-ranking officials and commanders.
The parade included missiles, tanks, armored vehicles, rifles, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), fighter jets, radar systems and air defense missile systems as well as soldiers in the latest camouflage gear.
National Army Day parades are used to celebrate the military’s latest achievements and despite insisting no threat is posed to regional countries, the intimidating missile with the Israel banner raised questions.
