Iran to test-fire missile that could reach Israel

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran will on Monday test-fire a missile which defence analysts have said could hit Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf region, state radio reported on Sunday.

It said the surface-to-surface Shahab 3 missile would be tested on the second day of missile manoeuvres by the elite Revolutionary Guards that got under way on Sunday.

Iran says the Shahab 3, which has been tested several times in the past, can travel about 2,000 km.
