Iran has built a new rocket launch site which is
likely to be used for testing ballistic missiles (?), military analysts as
saying. Satellite imagery acquired by DigitalGlobe in 2012 and 2013 shows
the construction of the new launch facility located in Semnan province, 40
km southeast of Shahrud. The unfinished site has no storage facilities for
liquid rocket fuel needed for rockets that launch satellites, which suggests
it is built for launcher using solid fuel.
