Iran test-fires new long-range ballistic missile

TEHRAN, Oct. 11 (MNA) – Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan says the country has successfully test-fired a new long-range ballistic missile, dubbed “Emad.”

“The Emad missile, which was designed and made domestically by our scientists in Iran, is the first long-range missile of the Islamic Republic of Iran that can be controlled and directed until the last moment of hitting its targets,” Dehghan told reporters on Sunday.

He underlined that the missile is capable of striking targets with great precision.

“We do not need permission from anyone to boost our military and missile capabilities. We will decisively follow our defense program objectives and expand our missile capabilities. Emad missile is a result of our persistence,” he said.

General Dehghan marked this event as a great technological advancement in Iran’s military capabilities.
