Iranian state TV showed images of at least three missiles firing simultaneously and among other missiles test launched today was a new missile which Iranian officials said could reach targets almost 1,250 miles away which would put Israeli, Afghanistan, and American targets in the region within striking distance. This Iranian military says the tests show Iran's might and will. He added that iran can launch a large number of missiles simultaneously in a real region. The tests came after an Iranian official said Iran would attack Israel and other strategic interests in the region if the US struck Iran over its nuclear program. The Bush administration says it wants to resolve the issue diplomatically but it won't rule out military options. Iran maintains its nuclear program is a peaceful one.
