Iran has revealed an underground rocket bunker full of bombs in footage broadcast on its state television network as a rousing message to its people.
The clip shows a long tunnel deep beneath the earth filled with weapons, trucks and parts that seem to belong to the Qiam-1 ballistic missile system.
Huge posters of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani are hanging outside the bunker's large entrance.

Today, Iran's Foreign Ministry rejected accusations made at an ongoing summit of Muslim countries after regional rival Saudi Arabia said Iranian behavior threatens regional stability and security.
According to a state-owned company IRNA spokesperson, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson said the allegations are part of an ongoing program against Iran being pursued by the US and Israel.
Saudi Arabia has continued to sow divisions between Muslim countries and in the region, which is the wish of the Zionist regime, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi.

Ibrahim al-Assaf originally made the remarks early on Thursday at a meeting of Foreign Ministers of the 57-nation Organization for Islamic Cooperation in Jiddah, prior to a series of summit meetings in the kingdom.
Al-Assaf said the alleged sabotage of boats off the coast of the United Arab Emirates and a drone attack on a Saudi oil pipeline by Iranian-backed Houthi rebels from Yemen required the region to make more efforts to counter terrorist acts groups to combat extremists and terrorists. & # 39;
Iran has denied being involved in the attacks, but Al-Assaf added: & We must confront it with all means of strength and determination. & # 39;

But an American official claimed last month that Iran used explosives to blow holes in four ships – including two Saudi tankers – that were anchored in the Persian Gulf.
Asked about the sabotage caused by one of the proposed tankers by a & # 39; weapon & # 39 ;, the US. President Donald Trump warned that Tehran would suffer greatly. if it would make Washington furious and predicted a & # 39; bad problem for Iran if something happened & # 39 ;.
Relations between Iran and the West are coming at a delicate time, with tensions between Washington and Tehran rising this month over the US deploying an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers for the Persian Gulf due to an inexplicable threat.
The White House announced it would send the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and bombers to fight Tehran

Relations continued on Wednesday when Supreme Leader Khamenei said his country would not negotiate on issues related to its military capabilities.
During a meeting with university professors, Khamenei & # 39; Negotiations on defensive issues means that we give up our defensive capabilities & # 39 ;.
He said that negotiating with the US would only be harmful.

He said, however, that Iran is not looking for nuclear weapons & # 39; not because of sanctions or America & # 39; but because nuclear weapons are banned according to Islamic sharia.
The Iranians said they would limit their nuclear program in the 2015 Iran Deal, but the US President Donald Trump's government broke the agreement because they said it didn't prevent the development of weapons.
President Trump called it the & # 39; worst deal in history & # 39 ;.
And Iran later announced that it was withdrawing, causing the country to increase its uranium enrichment in exchange for lifting economic sanctions.
Iran set a deadline for Europe on 7 July to offer better conditions for the unraveling nuclear deal, otherwise it will resume enrichment closer to the level of weapons.
