TEHRAN, Jan. 1 (UPI) -- Iran successfully test fired two missiles in the fifth day of a naval exercise to test the protection of its maritime borders, an Iranian admiral said.
Rear Adm. Amir Rastegari told Press TV Tuesday the test firing of the Qader short-range anti-ship cruise missile successfully hit and destroyed a mock enemy target. He also said the test-firing of the Noor long-range anti-ship cruise missile was also successful.
The Iranian navy said Monday it successfully test fired the Thunder or Ra'd surface-to-air missile capable of striking medium-range aerial targets.
Iran Friday embarked on a six-day naval drill east of the Straits of Hormuz in the Sea of Oman and north of the Indian Ocean.
