DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran successfully tested a medium-range ballistic missile two weeks ago, a senior military planning official was quoted as saying by the Tasnim news agency on Monday.

"We tested a missile with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles) and eight meters error margin two weeks ago. An eight-meter error margin means ...full accuracy," Tasnim quoted Brigadier General Ali Abdollahi as saying.
