The missiles tested by Iran were of the Nazeat-10 and Fajr-5 varieties, according to the report. Fajr-5 missiles were also fired by Hamas at Israel in November. They have a range of 45 miles, and the Nazeat-10 missiles have a range of about 62 miles.

Iran has admitted to supplying Hamas with the technology to produce such weapons.
