In-spite of the protest from US and other countries, Iran tested its new ballistic missile with capabilities of hitting targets 1,242 miles away on 23 September, 2017.
The test was conducted successfully and the launch images were carried by broadcaster IRIB.
The name of the missile is Khorramshahr and was displayed at a military parade in Tehran on Friday.
The launch of the Khoramshahr missile was shown on the state tv.
