Iran to launch production line of domestically-made missile



Iran is scheduled to launch the production line of Zolfaqar missile, which has been designed and manufactured by domestic engineers, in the Defense Week to mark anniversary of Iraqi-imposed war 1980-1988.

 Zolfaqar missile is the first Iranian missile using solid fuel with a range of 700 kilometers and high-precision guide capability.

The missile was unveiled in Bandar Abbas in southern Iran during parades on the first day of the Sacred Defense Week.

Iran marks September 21-27 as Sacred Defense Week each year to commemorate the beginning of the Iraqi invasion of Iran by the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.

Saddam Hussein was encouraged by the US to invade Iran to destroy the revolutionary government of Iran.
