Iran to inaugurate missile projects in Feb.

27 January 2010 [15:20] - TODAY.AZ
Iran will inaugurate several missile and arms projects next month to coincide with the 31st anniversary of its 1979 Islamic revolution, a Revolutionary Guards commander said on Tuesday.
"Iran's Defense Ministry will inaugurate several missiles and arms projects during the Fajr (Dawn) 10-day period, marking the victory of the 1979 Islamic revolution," Guard’s commander Massoud Jazayeri told a news conference.

Jazayeri gave no other details of the planned events

New satellite projects would unveil at the same time with Iran's aerospace organization, he said.

Iran marks the revolution's anniversary from February 1-11, starting on the day in 1979 when the Islamic Republic's founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned to Tehran from exile in France.

In mid-December, Iran said it successfully test-fired a long-range, upgraded Sejil 2 missile.
