Tehran - State television says Iran test-fired short-range missiles during drills by the elite Revolutionary Guard.

English-language Press TV reported that the missiles tested were the Fateh-110 and Tondar-69, but did not give specifics on the range or other details.

Iran has had the solid-fuel Fateh missile, with a range of 193km, for several years.

Press TV quoted a Revolutionary Guard spokesperson saying on Saturday that the exercises would involve simultaneous and consecutive launches of missiles fired at mock targets.
