Iran says develops missile interceptor system-TV

Iran said on Sunday it was developing a weapons system to intercept incoming cruise missiles, state-run Press TV reported.

Iran's English-language satellite television station said the system could hit missiles.

Israel often threantens the Islamic Republic possible military offensive over the nuclear programme.

"The Iranian air force has managed to build tens of anti-aircraft batteries and missile systems in addition to sophisticated radar systems," said General Ahmad Miqani, an air defence commander, quoted by Iran's English-language satellite news network.

"Today, the military is able to both detect stealth cruise missiles and destroy them," the television quoted Miqani as saying. He gave no further details.
