Iran has successfully tested two missiles during the the naval drills in the Strait of Hormuz.
One was a Qadar coast-to-coast missile, which was said to have hit its mock target.
The other was a long-range surface-to-surface Nour missile.
The military exercises, in one of the world’s most important oil trade routes, are meant to demonstrate Iran’s capability to defend itself and send a message of peace and friendship to neighbouring countries, according to Tehran.
