AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The modern tactics employed in a war game launched by the IRGC Ground Force in southwest Iran attest to its capabilities in fixed and mobile defense on the ground, IRGC Commander Major General Hossein Salami said.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the drill, codenamed “Payambar-e Azam 16 (The Great Prophet)”, Major General Salami said on Thursday that the drill involved a combination of modern tactics to hit the enemy’s fixed and mobile targets.
“The IRGC Ground Force has obtained the offense power with the use of all systems and has achieved the fixed and mobile defense power on the ground against the enemies,” the commander added.
IRGC chief warns enemies of Iran’s defensive firepower
The commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) says the ill-wishers and enemies of Iran should be afraid of the country’s defensive might, a glimpse of which has been showcased in the recent military drills.
He said the Iranian armed forces have always kept their spirit of "authority, defense, resistance and aggression" against the enemies, adding, “The enemy should take a lesson from the firepower showcased by the Iranian forces during ‘The Great Prophet’ drill.”
General Salami said, “The Ground Forces of the IRGC guarantee our security, independence, honor and dignity and they shone brightly in their latest war game.”
"The IRGC Ground Force’s battle might is much more than what we see today, and in this exercise, we showed only a small example of this power.”
When all such powers are combined, the IRGC chief noted, an all-out fire will come upon the enemies.
Noting that the enemies are afraid of the steadfast steps of the Iranian Ground Force personnel in the IRGC, Major General Salami said, “The country's territorial integrity will not be neglected even for a single moment.”
The military exercise in the southwestern province of Khuzestan involved various IRGC units such as the infantry, commandos, special forces, armored divisions, artillery, missile and drone units, and ground force airborne troops.
Iran’s Armed Forces hold routine military exercises throughout the year.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the country will not hesitate to strengthen its military capabilities, including its missile power, which are entirely meant for defense, and that Iran’s defense capabilities will be never subject to negotiations.
