Iran tests medium-range missiles
The Islamic republic of Iran has successfully carried out the second stage of its military drill dubbed "The Great Prophet IV", Press TV reported.
Several models of medium-range Shahab-2 missiles were tested during the military drill on Sunday night.
According to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Air Force Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the Shahab-2 missiles would hit targets at least 300 kilometers and at the most 700 kilometers away.
"Such drills give the IRGC the opportunity to hit targets with missiles under any conditions," Brig. Gen Salami said.
The third and the last stage of "The Great Prophet IV" will be held on Monday morning. The long-range Shahab missile will be fired in the last stage.
A number of missiles including Iranian-made Fateh-110, a short-range ground-to-ground missile and Tondar-69, a short-range naval missile, were also launched consecutively at mock targets across the country in the first stage of the military drill on Sunday morning.
"The Great Prophet IV" maneuver is a sequel to "The Great Prophet III" which was carried out last year by the IRGC naval and ground forces in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz region.
