Iran test-fired three short-range missiles on Sunday as the Islamic republic began war games two days after the UN nuclear watchdog disclosed it was building a second uranium enrichment plant.

Hossein Salami, air force commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards, said that Monday would also see a test-firing of a long-range missile which Iran says has a range of 1,300-2,000 kilometres (800-1,240 miles) and is capable of hitting arch-foe Israel.

“Tomorrow we will test the long-range Shahab-3 missile,” he told state television.

He also told reporters, without elaborating, that the Guards tested a “multiple missile launcher for the first time” on Sunday and that later in the day Shahab-1 and Shahab-2 medium-range missiles would be test-fired.

Iran’s Fars news agency said the multiple launcher could fire two missiles aimed at separate targets simultaneously.
