ANKARA: On Monday, The defence minister said, Iran’s military has successfully test-fired two new domestically made missiles, one of them a long-range ballistic missile.

Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the ballistic missile had radar-evading capabilities. The spoke person said, “The new generation of long-range ground-to-ground ballistic missile with a fragmentation warhead and the laser-guided air-to-surface and surface-to-surface missile dubbed Bina (Insightful) has been successfully test-fired.” “The Bina missile is capable of striking important targets such as bridges, tanks and enemy command centers with great precision.” Iran already has long-range surface-to-surface Shahab missiles with a range about 2,000 km (1,250 miles) that are capable of reaching Israel and U.S. military bases in the Middle East.
