Iran has successfully test-fired a new long-range surface-to-surface missile, state-run IRNA reported on Sunday.
The Emad (Pillar) missile, designed and built by Iranian experts, is the country’s first long-range missile that can be precision-guided until it reaches its target, said Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqan, Iran’s defense minister.
“To follow our defense programs, we don’t ask permission from anyone,” he said, according to IRNA.
The new rocket is “capable of scrutinizing the targets and destroying them completely,” IRNA reported.
