`Iran test-fires short-range missiles`
Tehran: Iranian media say the military has test-fired several short-range missiles, including the type Palestinian militant Hamas group used to attack Tel Aviv last November.
Thursday`s report by the semi-official Fars news agency says the missiles were tested during an Army exercise in central Iran.
It says the missiles fired were Nazeat-10 and Fajr-5. During weeks of fighting in November, Gaza`s Hamas rulers fired Iranian-made Fajr-5 rockets that came close to Israel`s heartland, including the cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for the first time.
Later, Iran admitted supplying Hamas with the technology to produce Fajr-5. The missile has a range of 75 kilometres, or 45 miles. The range of the Nazeat-10 missiles is about 100 kilometres, or 62 miles.
Iran regularly holds manoeuvre to test and promote its military power.
