TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran has unveiled a new surface-to-air missile and two radar systems it claims will boost the country's defense capabilities.

Iran's air defense chief says the missile will enable Iranian forces to "shoot down any hostile target," even at high altitudes.

Tehran regularly announces military advances that cannot be independently verified.

It has surface-to-surface missiles with a range of about 1,250 miles, enough to reach Israel and U.S. military bases in the region.
