Iran's military says it has successfully test-fired short range missiles.The news came just days after it was revealed that a secret Iranian nuclear facility had been discovered.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard says the test drills are meant to show they are prepared to crush foreign military threats. They also say they're prepared to test longer-range missiles in the coming days that may be capable of reaching U.S. military bases in the Persian Gulf.

U.S. officials warn the tests could lead to tougher international sanctions.

Iranian leaders are expected to attend a meeting with western powers, including the United States on Thursday.
