Iran successfully test fired a new missile Monday in a fresh effort to enhance the country’s military might, Iran’s Fars News Agency reported.
The Samen missile, which was reportedly designed and manufactured in Iran, was shot during an Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps drill in the border city of Marivan, Kurdistan, Fars reported. No other information on the missile was immediately available.
