Iran says it successfully test-fires new generation of short-range missile

Iran says it has successfully test-fired a new generation of a short-range surface-to-surface missile. Iranian state television says the third generation Fateh-110 missile was successfully tested Wednesday.

State TV broadcast footage of the missile being fired and then hitting a target on the ground. The solid-fuel Fateh can strike targets up to 120 miles (193 kilometers) away. Iran has had the missile for several years. Fateh means "conqueror" in both Farsi and Arabic. The report did not elaborate on the advances of the new generation of the missile.
