Iran test-fires two ballistic missiles

New Delhi : International media is reporting that Iran test-fired two ballistic missiles during military drills from the East Alborz Heights in the northern part of the country on Wednesday.

According to reports, the missiles — Qadr-H and Qadr-F — were fired by Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

The Qadr-H missile has a range of 1,700 kilometers, while the Qadr-F missile has a range of about 2,000 kilometers.

The IRGC missile drills being undertaken in different parts of the country are aimed at sending a message across that Iran has the deterrent power to counter possible external and internal threats.
