Iran says it is ready to test its new medium-range (Shahab-3) ballistic missile in front of 'observers,' following a successful test firing last month.
Iranian Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani did not say who those observers might be. He said the missile was designed to increase Iran's deterrent ability against its enemies -- namely Israel.
Tehran has said the Shahab-3 is entirely Iranian made, but some of its technology is believed to come from North Korea.
Israel, with U.S. help, has developed the Arrow anti-missile system to counter threats including new Iranian missiles. "
