According to Thursday's report, the missiles were tested during an army exercise in central Iran. It said the missiles fired were Nazeat-10 and Fajr-5.


During weeks of fighting in November, Gaza's Hamas rulers fired Iranian-made Fajr-5 rockets that came close to Israel's heartland, including the cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for the first time.


Later, Iran admitted supplying Hamas with the technology to produce Fajr-5. The missile has a range of 75 kilometers, or 45 miles. The range of the Nazeat-10 missiles is about 100 kilometers, or 62 miles.


Iran regularly holds maneuver to test and promote its military power.
