Moscow: Irans Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) have successfully test-fired a domestically built Hormuz-2 ballistic missile, media reports said on Thursday.

A floating target was destroyed from a distance of 250 kilometers.

However, this missile is capable of engaging targets at a distance of up to 300 kilometers.

"The naval ballistic missile called Hormuz-2 has

successfully destroyed a target that was 250 kilometers away," Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the IRGC's Aerospace Force, was quoted as saying.

The announcements follow earlier reports by the US media of an Iranian missile test.

On Monday the IRGC had fired two short-range missiles over southeastern Iran -- one on March 4 that missed its target and another on March 5 that hit its intended target.
