Iran plans three days of military maneuvers, including short-range missile tests, beginning Sunday - its first since the UN Security Council imposed sanctions against it in late December, state-run television said. "The elite Revolutionary Guards plans to begin a three-day missile maneuver on Sunday near Garmsar city," said the broadcast. The city is located in northern Iran on the edge of Kavir desert, about 100 kilometers southeast of Tehran. "Zalzal and Fajr-5 missiles will be test fired in the war game," the television quoted an unnamed commander of the guards, as saying. Both are considered short-range missiles. "The maneuver is aimed at evaluating defensive and fighting capabilities of the missiles," the commander was quoted as saying.
