TEHRAN (AP): A news agency in Iran is reporting that the Islamic Republic has built a new surface-to-surface cruise missile capable of being launched from an airplane.

The report today by the semi-official Fars news agency quotes Gen Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the airspace department of the elite Revolutionary Guard, as saying that the missile has a range of 700 kilometres.

Hajizadeh said the missile can be launched from land-based pads, naval vessels, aircraft, helicopters and drones.

From time to time Iran announces building new military devices, which cannot be independently verified.

Iran began a self-sufficient military programme in 1992, under which the country produces weapons from mortars to submarines.
