Iran tests new missile defying US sanctions

Tehran—Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has launched several medium-range and short-range ballistic missiles in recent days as part of a military exercise, the official IRNA news agency reported on Tuesday.
The missiles had a range of 300 kilometers (185 miles) to 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles), IRNA quoted Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the Guard’s aerospace division, as saying.
IRNA said the missiles, launched from silos in several locations across the country, demonstrated Iran’s “deterrence power” and its readiness to confront threats. State TV ran what it said was video footage of the operation, showing missiles in underground silos and flashes of light from nighttime launches, reports Arab News.
State media said the exercise was in its final phase on Tuesday.—Agencies
