Iran test fires new long-range missile, report

TEHRAN, March 8 (Xinhua) -- Iran has "successfully" test fired a new long-range missile, Iran's English-language television station Press TV reported on Sunday. "Iran's Defense Ministry said it has successfully installed long-range (air-to-sea) missiles on some of its jet fighters," the report said, which did not say when the test was conducted. "The ministry said Iranian experts have managed to build and test-launched the new missile to hit its naval targets within a range of more than 110 kilometers." "These are also equipped with radar system for automatic navigation and target recognition," the report said, adding the 500-kg missile is Iran's latest military development. Iran's latest test of its long-range missiles comes amid the global efforts to soothe the tension between Iran and the West over its nuclear program. Tehran has said that its military agenda is defensive and its technology is aimed at the possible aggressions. On Wednesday, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said that Israel's nuclear sites are within the reach of its missiles
