Iran's Ministry of Defense has published a video purportedly showing the launch of a new cruise missile, saying it has a 1,350-kilometre range.
In the 37-second video on the ministry website, the launch was shown from different angles with the projectile finally hitting somewhere in the desert.
Defense Minister Gen. Amir Hatami said the missile hit its target in the Saturday test after travelling 1,200 kilometres.
He said it is capable of hitting fixed targets, travel in low altitude for use waging electronic war.
Occasionally, Iran announces military achievements that cannot be independently verified.
Since 1992, Iran has developed a self-sufficient military weapons program, producing mortars to missiles.
