ImageTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's official news agency says its navy has successfully test fired a sea missile from a newly commissioned destroyer in its southern waters.

IRNA said Tuesday the anti-ship missile, dubbed Noor, or Light, destroyed its target.

The report doesn't elaborate on the range or give the exact location of the launch but said the missile was fired from the Jamaran destroyer. The ship was inaugurated in February in a southern Iranian port.

The test is considered part of an assessment of the ship's capabilities. The missile has been used regularly in war games over the past years.

Iran occasionally announces military advancements that cannot be verified independently.
