MOSCOW, March 14 (RIA Novosti) - Iran’s Ground Forces successfully test-fired two short-range missiles during a military exercise in the central city of Kashan on Thursday, Press TV reported.

The Nazeat 10 and Fajr 5 missiles effectively engaged designated targets in an exercise aimed at “enhancing the defensive capabilities of the forces’ rocket-launching and missile units,” the agency said.

The Fajr 5 is a 333-mm surface-to-surface artillery rocket with a range of 75 kilometers.

The Nazeat 10 is a middle-range ballistic missile with a range of about 100 kilometers.

Iran’s Army previously staged a three-day drill, codenamed Khatam al-Anbia, in the southwestern Khuzestan Province on March 9.
