The photo shown below has been published by Iran’s state media showing their missile test. The photo has been used on the front pages of The Los Angeles Times, The Financial Times, The Chicago Tribune and several other newspapers as well as on BBC News, NYTimes.com and many other major news Web sites. Four missiles appear to take off from a desert launch pad in one image of the test published on the Iranian Revolutionary Guards website.
Later on it has been uncovered that the photo is tampered with. Let’s apply Verifeyed Professional Edition on the image (download the photo from here to perform the test by your own).
