    Iran launched its fourth satellite, called "Fajr", into orbit earlier this week.

    Iran sent its fourth satellite into orbit this week, Iranian media reports.

    The satellite is named “Fajr” and is a telecommunication satellite that transmits data to a station on the Earth.

    The United States were quick to react, with US State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki stating that “Iran’s missile program continues to pose a dangerous threat to the region and is an issue we monitor closely”, according to Fars.
