The Shahab-1 (Persian: Ŝahāb 1, meaning "Meteor-1") was the foundation of the long-range Iranian missile program.[3] During the Iran–Iraq War, Iran purchased Scud-B missiles from Libya, Syria and North Korea (Hwasong-5). It is a close copy of Hwasong-5 (Scud-B).[4]

Iran began making the Shahab-1 sometime between 1987 and 1994.[3]

Iran employed Shahab 1s extensively during the 1990s and early 2000s against Mujahidin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) camps in Iraq.[4]
