Iran announces missile maneuver
Tehran, Jan 21 (Xinhua) Iran announced Sunday to start a three-day military maneuver, its first after the UN Security Council issued sanctions against the country's nuclear programme in December, reported the state television.
"The Revolutionary Guards will start a three-day missile maneuver from Sunday near Garmsar city," about 100 km southeast of Tehran near a desert, it said.
An unnamed commander of the Revolutionary Guards was quoted as saying that Zalzal and Fajr-5 missiles would be test fired to examine their fighting capability.
These military drills are Iran's first after the UN passed resolution 1737, calling on Tehran to suspend its enrichment activities and imposed sanctions on Iran's nuclear and missile programme.
