IRAN TEST FIRES SHAHAB-3 MISSILES

IRAN TEST FIRES SHAHAB-3 MISSILES
An Iranian Shahab-3 missile is launched behind a picture of Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei during a military maneuver dubbed "al-Tasoul al-Aazam," or Greater Prophet, in a desert near the holy city of Qom 80 miles (130 kilometers) south of Tehran on November 2, 2006. During the 10-day maneuvers across several parts of Iranian territory, the Gulf waters, and the Sea of Oman, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards will test long-range Shahab-2 and Shahab-3 ballistic missiles carrying cluster heads and new types of torpedoes fired by submarines and military vessels. The Iranian exercises follow similar maneuvers in Gulf waters by the United States and five other countries which are said to be aimed at blocking possible nuclear proliferation.
