DUBAI - Iran is holding a military exercise on Saturday to test its missile and radar systems, a day after US President Donald Trump's administration imposed sanctions on Tehran for its recent ballistic missile test.

The United States sanctioned 13 individuals and 12 entities under US Iran sanctions authority on Friday, after the White House had put Iran "on notice" over a ballistic missile test and other activities.The Revolutionary Guards website said that the aim of the military exercise in Semnan province in central Iran was to "showcase the power of Iran's revolution and to dismiss the sanctions."



Iranian state news agencies reported that home-made missile systems, radars, command and control centers, and cyber warfare systems will be tested in the drill.
