Another proud achievement for Iran! Every year in Iran, September 22 marks the beginning of the "Sacred defense" week which is the anniversary of the outbreak of the 1980 to 1988 Iraq-Iran war. Since then, Iran has moved towards becoming self-sufficient in developing military equipment. During the years, Iran has developed numerous short-range, middle-range, and long-range ballistic and cruise missiles to protect itself against possible foreign invasions. Iran's Defense Minister, Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan together with a group of high-ranking air force officers unveiled the two home-made missiles. Qader is a medium-range cruise missile which can attack targets as far as 200 kilometers, while Nasr is considered a short-range cruise missile that can destroy its targets in the range of at least 35 kilometers. Both missiles have so far been successfully test launched and will be used in future maneuvers. These two new missiles have a number of significant advantages. For example, they can fly at a low altitude; they are quickly prepared to be launched; and enjoy high accuracy in destroying their targets; they have great power of destruction; and are very resistant against radio interference. With all the progress Iran has made in developing armament and weaponry, the country has always reiterated that all such activities serve defensive purposes and that Iran always seeks friendly relations with all the countries based on mutual respect. Meanwhile, Iran says it is ready to immediately react to any foreign invasion
