TEHRAN, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Iran tested multiple missile systems in war games this week, claiming success in homegrown systems it says are for defense purposes.

The Tehran Times reported Tuesday the Iranian military has been engaged in the training and testing exercises for four days over the eastern portion of the country with 8,000 military personnel. The military said it successfully used domestically produced medium-range, low altitude missiles in defense of an air attack.

Tuesday's drills employed the missiles and Iranian fighter jets in successfully stopping a foreign air invasion by both manned and unmanned aircraft, the military said.
