Source: The Internet - "IMA on YouTube"

On February 10, 2022, a video was uploaded to the IMA Media YouTube channel showing footage of a test of Iran's new Khaybar Shekan ("Khaybar Smasher") ballistic missile. The missile is launched from a mobile launcher, onboard cameras show the warhead detaching from the engine, and then the warhead is shown striking a designated target zone in a desert. It is noteworthy that the missile's name refers to the battle of Khaybar, in which the Muslims fought the Jews who inhabited the Khaybar oasis and defeated them. The "IMA" in IMA Media is an acronym for "Iran's Military Achievements." For more about the Khaybar Shekan missile, see MEMRI TV Clip No. 9533.
