Iran successfully test-fires long-range missiles

Iran's military has successfully test-fired two new domestically made missiles, one of them a long-range ballistic missile, the defence minister said today.

Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the ballistic missile had radar-evading capabilities.

"The new generation of long-range ground-to-ground ballistic missile with a fragmentation warhead and the laser-guided air-to-surface and surface-to-surface missile dubbed Bina (Insightful) have been successfully test-fired," state television quoted him as saying.

"The Bina missile is capable of striking important targets such as bridges, tanks and enemy command centres with great precision."

Iran already has long-range surface-to-surface Shahab missiles with a range about 2,000 km (1,250 miles) that are capable of reaching Israel and US military bases in the Middle East.

President Hassan Rouhani issued a congratulatory message saying: "Iran's children successfully test-fired a new generation of missiles," the television reported.
