I agree with most your points, but clearly they went out of their way to have some deniability by testing out in the middle of nowhere instead of underground in Israel
They didn't have much choice because of the tiny size of Israel, and plausible deniability ≠ presenting reasons to save face (which is what the poster I was replying to said).

My man. There are international treaties on nuclear weapons. Everyone knows the Israel's tricks.
However the "rules-based international order" (Blinken favourite phrase) built by the US must be respected because this symbolizes the US hegemony itself.

Thats why everyone is using all these joke excuses when they break "international laws"

What treaty are you talking about?

The NPT - which Iran is a signatory of but Israel is not - is the foremost treaty in the nuclear field and governs the rights of signatories.

"Article IV

1. Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty.

2. All the Parties to the Treaty undertake to facilitate, and have the right to participate in, the fullest possible exchange of equipment, materials and scientific and technological information for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Parties to the Treaty in a position to do so shall also co-operate in contributing alone or together with other States or international organizations to the further development of the applications of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, especially in the territories of non-nuclear-weapon States Party to the Treaty, with due consideration for the needs of the developing areas of the world."

Diagram showing evolution and iterations of Iran's precision-guided Fateh-class solid-fuel ballistic missiles:
Fateh.png


From relatively primitive converted artillery rocket Fateh-110A in early 2000s, to Raad-500 and Haj Qasem in 2020. Incredible pace of development.

The diagram's categorisations are not perfect because Raad-500 arguably belongs to a new generation/family, and other solid-fuel families exist, such as Sejjil-1/2 MRBM.
